    Hi. My 10,000 word undergrad politics dissertation is due in 55 days, and I have yet to start writing.

    I have a topic, have assembled an extensive literature and read through a lot of it, and written a detailed outline. It is an entirely theoretical - abstract research question.

    Can it be done? What do you think?

    Thanks - R

    Entirely possible. You could write that in a week if you put your mind to it.

    Entirely possible. That's a lot of time. I have written only 2k of my 10k word Politics dissertation and it's due in 27 days :yep:

    Yes but you will have to give up any social life, free time and such but you can still complete it easily and too a good standard if you are dedicated. 10000 words isn’t as much as you may think once you research and plan it all out.

    Definitely possible.
    I wrote a short book for a school competition.
    56,350 words in one week!
    Proof that this is possible.
    Don't ask me to post it up because I have mislaid the file after 8 years!

    That's less than 200 words a day so that's more than possible and you certainly wouldn't have to give up free time or your social life.

    Cheers all. Really just needed the encouragement! I know its possible, my tutors are just being pissy about it.

    Will take your advice and jettison my social life temporarily.

    Good luck to everyone!

    I'm in secondary school but I did a 20,000 word essay in one week - 8am to 10pm every day, only three 30 minute breaks. It felt like I was dying but I was so happy when I finally got it done! Good luck
