I finished writing the last section of my dissertation on September 20 but then had to wait for it to be reviewed by my editor and adviser and make edits and write the acknowledgements and dedication (it's almost like a real life book). This Saturday I finished the last few things and it's now done!
I still have to defend (think big stressful presentation) my dissertation on October 24 but then I'll be done for real.
Here are a few photos of the writing process for the final two chapters. All of the quotes from my participant interviews had to be put into themes, synthesized and analyzed. That was a messy messy process but super rewarding to watch it all turn into something meaningful.
