Shut Up & Write! + Discussion and Networking
Do you have an article draft you need to work on? An outline to refine? A book proposal to begin? Even a totally half-baked research idea to flesh out on [real or virtual] paper? Okay, so answer this: are you your own worst enemy when it comes to putting nose to the grindstone? This event will include networking, timed writing, and discussion of a specific topic (see below). Bring a project to work on, or ideas to get started on.
The discussion for this event will focus on developing productive writing/research habits. Please read the article “The Habits of Highly Productive Writers” by Rachel Toor in The Chronicle of Higher Education (11/17/2014)
and be prepared to share and discuss.
