Setting Your Writing Routine and Sticking with It

Setting Your Writing Routine and Sticking with It

January 22, 2018

Finding time to write is a serious struggle for many academics, especially when writing is often the last thing we want to do. Everything can seem easier than writing: cleaning the house, preparing to teach, reading about writing—even grading starts to take on a special shine when we’ve got something we need to write.

For a lot of us, the day is so packed with paid and unpaid work obligations that there never seems to be a good chunk of time to sit down and get words on the page anyway. How do we make a writing routine that actually help us get writing done in the face of all these very real challenges?

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski explains how to set up a writing routine that really works for your unique situation and work style. She covers common roadblocks to writing, how to build routines that encourage productive writing in the face of those roadblocks, and the whys and hows of setting up accountability systems to keep writing routines on track.
