Ah ok! remember that a local library can also be your best friend!
What takes up a lot of time is the research elements-what I suggest is you plan what you're going to write now. Put it into sub sections where possible, then find online articles, books, videos, movies, reviews, peoples opinions, expert opinions on your topic. Put these references into the sub section plan-make a note (where needed) of the author, title and publication date. It's mental how long it could take to find a suitable range of sources that fit smoothly into your piece. Keep in mind 6,000 words (or 5,000 in many places) may be close to 10 or so pages, excluding contents, title page and bibliography.
We were told it would take a very long time-yet as I started my first one late, in total I had about 5 weeks to do it-and I wasn't even one of the last to finish-mine was even printed into a proper book style. It's always best to save more time needed than less time-start by doing a big block of writing, it'll feel good when it is out of the way. Then I suggest, when you have finished, leave it for a few days-a week and re read it. You'll be clear headed and you can adapt anything needed
