Hybrid Pedagogy’s Jesse Stommel and our very own Charlotte Frost rethink academic life and writing productivity in this on-going series of hints, tips and hacks.
WRITE. Establishing a writing lifestyle is perhaps the most important step you can take in securing your successful academic career. If you devise a routine right from the start, it’ll seem like second nature. There are all sorts of ways of doing this, but suffice to say you must build writing into your working week. In fact, preferably, you should make writing a part of your daily routine. Once you’ve gotten into the swing of things, writing will no longer seem like a chore, your productivity will increase, and you’ll excel in your field. And it really can be as simple as just pulling up a chair and writing. In fact, we’re guessing there’s a writing project you should be doing right now, so our first tip is to stop reading this and write at least 250 words on any project you have underway. And, yes, we do mean right now! Want more tips on Hackademic? Click here!
