A week dedicated to writing mostly though i did review a couple of other texts. I need to submit my sample chapter next week and thats going well. One problem though is knowing exactly how many words to write!
On all TMAs up until now i have had a set word limit, however the sample chapter can be whatever i want it to be within reason (the dissertation as a whole is limited to about 15000 words). My sample chapter is the introduction and general review and i don't want to eat up too many words as i want to dedicate around 5000 each to the two major areas of the project. Thus i think 2-3000 words is a good limit, it can always be revised later anyway.
