At times you may wonder how people are able to complete an impeccable and perfect thesis for their PhD. At time you may even feel envious of them, but the truth is, if they can do it, you can do it too. Writing a PhD thesis is a major task and an extremely dreaded one. People who are on the verge of starting their thesis, often hear of horror stories where people fail at their thesis writing and usually people get badly affected by these stories. There are some points that should be noted before starting a thesis so that it can be completed peacefully and successfully.
First and foremost, at all times, avoid story tellers! You do not want to start some work with a prejudice. Start with a clean slate and make your own story, do not live the story that belongs to someone else. Your views and ideas about a thesis may be completely different and your approach may be a more practical one.
Choose your topic wisely and stick to it! Once you know the topic of your study you may have a clearer idea about how you will go about studying it. Choosing a topic of your interest will help make the entire process of the study easier and more worthwhile.
Keep the style of explanation diverse. Include references, citations, illustrations, inferences, statistics, graphs and other such explanatory forms. This will keep the reader interested and it will show the amount of effort you have put in your study.
Keep the language and style of writing simple. This will not only help people in understanding your work better but it will also help you in avoiding petty mistakes.
And, have the work proofread, once you are done with the thesis work, make sure to have it checked by someone who belongs to your field of study. This helps in maintaining an accuracy in work.
