4 months in

OK a lot has happened in the last 4 months of silence on here. I am in the process of writing my MPhil transfer document to proceed fully with my PhD. This is proving more challenging than anything else I've written so far. I have probably 16,000+ words and appear to have a block on how to concise communicate what I've done so far. My main block, I believe, lies in knowing what to leave out of this simple transfer document.

Whilst attempting this I have written a third paper, presented that at conference, and now got that same paper published (or soon to be) in a peer-reviewed design journal. Easy-peasy compared to writing this transfer document! Counter-intuitive. Go figure!

The above paper "A Can of Worms: Has Visual Communication a Position of Influence on Aesthetics of Interaction?" was presented at Design Principles and Practices 2011 in Sapienza University of Rome on 2nd February. It will be published soon in the peer-reviewed Design Principles and Practices: An International Journal, and can be read on this blog (see tabs above).

Anyway, enough plugging. Back to the transfer document - draft 2.
