Time to Write
A Weekend to Write or Edit at Least 5 Pages of Your Academic Writing Project
Since late August, you put your projects that you nurtured this summer on the back burner.
You’ve been teaching in person for the first time since the plague started and it’s been absolutely nerve wracking. You’re exhausted by the end of your day and arrive home only to collapse in a heap on your couch with a bag of potato chips because that’s all you have energy for.
You’ve said to yourself - “I’ll pick up my article next week.” And yet your writing project just sits there.
It’s one month later.
You wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night wondering if you’ll ever get promotion and tenure.
You can’t bring yourself to write the journal editor and tell them you need another month on your revise and resubmit. It would be the third time.
You don’t want to face your advisor and tell them you NEED 2 more weeks?
Your shoulders are tight. Your jaw hurts. You are in physical pain. As a result, you can’t sleep. You are unable to focus on any of your work.
You’ve told yourself you don’t have the time.
You’ve told yourself you’re too tired.
You’ve told yourself you don’t have the stamina.
Let’s debunk 3 myths about academic writing that likely gets your knickers in a bunch:
- Writing isn’t only new words on the page - revision is more important;
- You don’t have to write for hours on end - you CAN move your project forward in 15 minute increments; and
- While we were taught to write all by ourselves, it’s easier to write WITH people - community makes it better.
What if you could acquire easy tools to move this boulder up the hill one small step at a time without inner dialogues to overcome anxiety?
What if you could have a community cheering you on as you did it instead of efficiently responding to other people’s not writing related requests?
What if you could have a tool that could relieve the exhaustion, pain, anxiety, and procrastination?
My upcoming free virtual event will give you the chance to do just that.
