    My Dissertation for Masters - wanted! Amateur writers!

    Okay folks, who here has written a big project at some point in their lives and is willing on spending some time filling in a short questionnaire for me, plus being part of a focus group for an hour or so sometime in the summer?

    My masters dissertation has officially been approved. It is on information literacy in amateur writers, concentrating on research they have done for larger pieces of individual or collaborated work. I will be seeing if people think they are better at research because of it, and what they see as the librarian's role in all of this. I.e. did you use a library at all.

    I will be making a small questionnaire, and then running an online focus group or two later in the summer. It shouldn't take up too much time, but I need volunteers.

    If you are needing I am willing on paying for this, as an incentive.

    I'm intrigued by this and willing to help if I'm able, but money would probably muddy our friendship and I'd rather preserve that so you keep it.

    I admit I wonder how qualified I am to help. When you say 'big project' what does that mean from your point of view? A novel? A book series? An important piece of literature that furthered the minds of mankind? ^_^

    What would be involved with the focus groups, as I'm sure my Australian timezone will rear its ugly head when the time comes. A questionnaire though? Piece of cake.
    So I’m cutting that branch off the cherry tree.
    Singing this will be my victory.
    Then I, I see them coming after me.
    And they’re following me across the sea.
    And now they’re stinging my friends and my family.
    And I, I don’t know why this is happening.

    What you would define as "big project". If you have ever written a novel that's maybe 20k words plus, then that's what I'm currently looking for. Something you researched for, in anyway.

    And I already know Australian times well from Amari/Eteri on this site :P

    I've written up multiple RPG campaigns where I've had to research mythology, ancient religions, architecture, and other things of the sort if that counts.

    If so, I'd love to help you out.

    *blinks with the sudden amount of people willing to take part*

    Oh wow. Wow. Okay so this is awesome. Thank you so much. Please send me a PM if you need the money for this and we can sort that out internally from there.

    Rev, if it would equate to around 20k + words of writing then yes. It's a project of a place you made up yourself so yes.

    Thank you again!! I will be ok contact in due time. They'll at least be an Althanas gift for all those taking part.

    Phi, is this strictly for fictional work? I've written a number of technical papers and major projects that require research as well as a few big projects here, so I think I'll qualify either way, but want to be clear and suspect others may have written thesis-style papers as well.

    Hey, yeah it's purely creative writing as my dissertation is centred on that. Thanks for the offer though, that's really helpful and kind of you. If you do have something creative I'd love to have you
