About Just Frances

Just Frances is a silly and pointless website maintained by me, Frances Ryan. I am a quirky runner, writer, thinker, drinker, and researcher. I am also a daughter, sister, aunty, friend, and widow. But mostly, I am just Frances.

I write about my personal experiences with polycystic kidney disease and idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura, running, life as young(ish) widow (spoiler alert: it goes on), my PhD studies, and all sorts of other rubbish.

Thesis Progress

How many words have I written for my PhD? Probably not enough if I'm to submit in Spring 2017. But you can track my progress below; I will aim to update it at least once per week. (Goal: 80,000 words. Last update: 10 May 2017)
