Now that my practical work of project is nearing its end, the time of writing down what I’ve done and found has also come. The joy of finishing the work is killed by the mere thought of writing a dissertation. I just realised how badly I hate writing. I’m not sure what brought me in this world of blogging - perhaps whining? Anyway, I don’t even like blogging and the slow updates are enought to prove that
I will have a month or so to put in words the work of past three months. I have done enough to write a huge report, but I don’t like writing. Writing is not easy either. To present something in a way that can be understood by anyone who reads it is a daunting task indeed. To top that, technical writing is perhaps the most boring form of it. Multiple references, figures, tables, source code, details of failures and success, testing environment, etc. need to be written regularly. While working I don’t usually note down each and every thought that crosses my mind, nor do I jot down every way that I try to solve a certain problem. Similarly, certain results will also be missing because I do recall not bothering to write some findings because I was not having pen or any other means of writing (apart from keyboard) at that time. Speaking of that, I did save certain information in the computer, some on loose sheets, and some not at all. So together with the pain of writing I will also have to deal with other problems resulting from my sloppiness.
With about 37 days left I will need every possible source of support to keep me motivated in order to cross this final hurdle.
Good Luck to me!
