Writing a thesis takes 6 to 36 months
The book How to Write a Thesis acknowledges the 2015-released translation skills of Caterina Mongiat Farina and Geoff Farina concerning Come si fa una tesi di laurea by Italian humanities professor and writer Umberto Eco. The content, form, and style manual begins with the worst case scenario of students who are clueless and desperate about choosing a topic, cinching research, and completing writing. The 1975-published review classic therefore considers a range of writing schedule deadlines, from a rigorous six-month minimum to a super-relaxed three-year maximum.
The seven chapters, preceded by forewords and introductions and succeeded by notes, disappoint no one, writing-blocked or not, since task completion depends upon:
• narrow thesis focus;
• retrievable research-worthy resources;
• vigilant pre-submission protocols.
