Well, it is all starting to come together.
Already have a full layout done, all the building blocks ready to go (3 papers, one on each study) the keystone found (I have an Hypothesis *in best John Cleese voice*) and the purpose is a good one.
Just submitted it for the inevitable abuse/shredding/laudations from my supervisor. But the feeling of having achieved something is unreal.
And no, there is a chapter 0 before this that has the TOC and so on in it, this is a 'real' chapter.
Currently sipping on a wee dram of Talisker.
