LSE Impact Blog – “Six academic writing habits that will boost productivity”
I’m not sure by the notion of ‘productivity’, but there is some good advice here. Here are the headlines:
- They “time-block” their writing in advance
- They set themselves artificial deadlines
- They deliberately seek “flow” (but don’t push themselves if they can’t find it)
- They design accountability structures around themselves
- They use small steps and short deadlines to tackle large projects
- They “write their way” out of their blocks
On the last point, see this useful post at Explorations of Style. Jo van Every continues to provide useful advice. See, for example, Is this Real Writing or procrastination? and Incorporating writing into your workload: The Research Day (an excerpt from her next book).
This Twitter thread also has some useful suggestions:
