Cultural, historical issues

Contact Blast Theory and other potential interviewees (Sue, Jane).
Trim, prune and tidy.

Bibliography, quotes and appendix are not included in the word count, so stick primary research like interviews in the appendix.

PhD guidelines are useful to follow:
1. Title/Key question
2. Abstract/Overview
3. Background/Research area
4. Methods
5. Outcomes
6. Bibliography (2 parts becoming 1 – keep it relevant and lean)
