I am a 3rd year student studying English Lit and my dissertation is due on Friday. I am researching a topic that has never been studied before and it just feels like I’m fighting a lost cause. I submitted a chapter in January and got a first, but had to change it to fit into the wider topic. I have 7000 words to write in 4 days. It’s not the word count that worries me, as I’ve submitted 3000 words essays that I’ve done in 6 hours before and got firsts. It’s the topic. I just hate it and can’t even convince myself that it’s worth doing. Any advice?

Who cares if you hate it or whether it is worth doing?

Suck it up, write your dissertation and get the best grade you can. Then never think about it again.

That's the battle of the mind and you should never let your mind win over you. Calm yourself down and motivate yourself on doing it

Get on with it. You can't change topic now so it's irrelevant. Don't even let yourself think about it.

Just approach it like any other assignment where you have no choice of title/topic. Just knuckle down to get it over with.
