Alistair Fraser on ‘Writing a book’

9781138192485.jpgAt the Maynooth Geography blog, Alistair Fraser reflects on ‘Writing a book‘. He’s just published Global Foodscapes: Oppression and resistance in the life of food, which looks interesting, but the reflections and advice are general and should be useful to many people embarking on or inside a book-length project. In summary: organise, disconnect, stop (or pause), find your voice, be realistic. Well worth a read.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post on writing, and perhaps I should do something again at some point. My sabbatical year is now at an end, and with it my self-imposed rules, so I will be back to balancing writing with teaching and multiple other tasks.
