Developing a writing plan

At the last meeting with my supervisor, he asked that I develop a writing plan (setting out deadlines for completing each chapter). Does anyone have a good model plan that they don't mind sharing or a link to any valuable resources for developing a writing plan?

PhD interview

I've been invited for an interview at Bristol university following my application for a Maths PhD there. I'm not too sure what to expect, the questions I'll be asked, and the questions I should ask. I'm meeting the admissions tutor, and the supervisor I proposed in my application and a few other potential supervisors. Anyone who has gone through this experience have any advice?
