The dreaded “Conclusions” chapter
I’ve sent rough drafts of my research chapters to my boss, but I’m having an unbelievable bout of writers’ block for the conclusions chapter. I have a section at the end of every research chapter with conclusions, some discussion and implications, and future directions. These are standard items for the end of a chapter, according to the postdocs in my group. I’m now struggling with how to write a conclusions chapter that doesn’t sound like it was copied from the end of each chapter. That would look awful and I’d appear incredibly unmotivated to take such a perceived shortcut.
