I think I'm almost to a good draft stage. I completely rewrote the beginning and I'm planning to completely rewrite the lit review section. I'm planning to have a couple of people look over it after that and then send it off.
Here's a plan for the lit review section:
General educational blogging practice
College-level connected blogging (which will lead nicely into my section on why this dissertation matters)
Shew. Feeling much less panicked now and like I actually know what I'm doing. I still have the chapter outline to think about. We'll see.
