I’ve mentioned Jo van Every’s work before in relation to writing and time-management. She has a new guide out – Finding Time for your Scholarly Writing. Jo kindly sent me an advance e-copy. I already try to write every day, or at least move the writing forward by doing something towards it, so much of this was familiar and reinforcing what I do. But the discussion of how to do a bit, even if you only have a few minutes a day for it, was useful.
Finding Time for your Scholarly Writing addresses the problem of juggling writing alongside your other responsibilities. I identify three kinds of time: full days, longish sessions, and short snatches. In this Short Guide, I explain what kinds of writing you can do in each, and suggest ways of combining the three to ensure that you make the best use of the time available at different points in the academic year.
The ebook will be published on 16 April 2018 and available from several online retailers. Preorders are now available from SOME retailers. I anticipate publishing a paperback (ISBN 978-1-912040-70-4) as well. This should be available by early May and can be ordered from my website (jovanevery.ca/books) or through local bookshops.
