Subject: when I wrote mine ..

...I found the best way to get past writers block was to write out first the rough outline of the thesis, i.e. all the chapter headings. Then under each chapter heading I wrote out the subheadings, so for my Geological Setting chapter I had subheadings 'Location of Field Area', 'Geological History' 'Lithostratigaphy' etc. Then under each subheading there may have been yet another set of subheadings, and then finally I wrote out bullet points of what needed to be said in each section. Then even if it wasn't in prose yet, I had down exactly what needed to be in each place. And often looking at the list of bullet points brought up some inspiration.
