Books, papers, articles, grant applications: writing is at the heart of academic life but it can sometimes seem impossible to find time and space to get it done. With all the demands of students, colleagues, and the never-ending influx of emails, it's all too easy to let writing slip down the agenda. How can you fit writing into busy academic life, and how can you banish the feelings of guilt and anxiety that often accompany it?
This session will help you to:
Develop and maintain a regular writing habit, even during busy periods
Find out what kinds of writing strategies work for you
Beat procrastination and 'writing aversion'
Identify the causes of writing blocks and how to tackle them.
We will spend some time during the session writing so please bring some ideas for a current writing project and something to write on or with (a laptop, or pen and paper is fine too).
