There’s no doubt about it; writing a book‐length project is challenging.
It takes new ways of thinking about a problem. It requires intensive research, thoughtful analysis, and a fitting organization. And, it calls for the perseverance to write an interesting, complete manuscript. Sometimes it also requires “managing” the committee, chair, or anticipated readers.
All the coaches at Defend & Publish are dissertation veterans who have gone on to become published authors. If you’re in the thick of it, finishing may seem an impossible task. We’re proud of the people just like you who we’ve helped to finish and meet their goals.
Why is writing a thesis or dissertation hard?
Perhaps more than anything else, though, this kind of writing raises anxiety. It’s the topic of horror stories about those who never completed the project or who did so under the most difficult circumstances.
At Defend & Publish we know the hard job of writing. We know what it takes to bring an academic writing project to completion whether it’s a dissertation or a journal article. Our coaches are reflective listeners, seasoned authors, and good communicators. And our clients finish. Period.
