Event Description:

Congratulations—you passed your qualifying exams, and now you get to write a book! Does that sound scary? If so, you’re not alone. Writing a dissertation can be as frightening as a Donald Trump executive order. But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, it can be enjoyable. Even exhilarating. You’re writing on your own research, after all. No more classes, no more papers. Just you, your sources, and your brilliant ideas, spanning the entire length of your favorite academic book.

But where to start? How to start? Indeed, simply starting the Herculean task of writing a dissertation is perhaps the most difficult, most opaque, and most important part of the whole process. This webinar will make that task a bit easier. From mapping out the dissertation, to selecting which chapter to write first, to crafting a writing routine that works for you and your commitments, you will come away with effective strategies for planning the dissertation. It’ll also give you a glimpse of Ideas on Fire’s Dissertation Rockstar Bootcamp, where you’ll gain sustained, personalized, and in-depth guidance.

In this FREE webinar, Ideas on Fire Rockstar Coach Dr. Terry K. Park takes us through this difficult topic, and offers some concrete advice for planning the dissertation while also protecting our wellness, bodies, and selves.

Note: This webinar is open to Grad School Rockstar Program or Dissertation Rockstar Bootcamp participants. If you’re not already enrolled, you can do so here and here.
