Now that you are completing your proposed Dissertation Prospectus, it is appropriate to look ahead at completing the dissertation itself. The entire process will be much smoother if you take time at the beginning to plan each step and consider how you will go about achieving your research plans.
1-Post your plan for completing your dissertation.
2- In your plan, be sure to list specific milestones and your timetable for completing these milestones, and when, specifically (e.g., in the evening, on weekends, etc.), you will work on your dissertation.
3-Also, comment on how you will keep your dissertation committee informed of your progress.
