The process of writing a dissertation or thesis can be incredibly isolating. You seclude yourself for days on end with nothing but books, pages on a computer screen, and your own thoughts. This isolation can be even more pronounced if are you writing your dissertation while away from your academic institution or community.



Academic blog writer Terry Brock has some very helpful thoughts on how to overcome this intense isolation (which can very often lead to unfinished projects and programs, or inferior work). Here are his main suggestions, upon which he elaborates in his article:

  1. Join a Writing Group

  2. Talk with Your Advisor… Whether You Need to or Not

  3. Get on the Phone with Everyone Else, Too

  4. Frequently Fly

Initially I had trouble writing my Project scope for my DBA  as I have an undergraduate in English and an MBA which meant I could write essays at a business report level but not a doctorate level. I reached out to Dr Leach at a Thesis Editor and she spoke with me over the phone several times trying to understand what I needed. She also put together a quick turnaround package as my deadline was very close by. Ultimately, she scheduled an appointment with an editor with many years of experience who guided me back onto the right path. My supervisors at university had only helped me a little but the Thesis Editor team have supported me entirely. I am not only grateful but will be working with Thesis Editor for the entirety of my DBA - the next 4 years. Thank you Dr Leach and thank you to the Thesis Editor team for a wonderful experience.
