Rockquemore: Tame Your Inner Critic

Kerry Ann Rockquemore continues her fine Inside Higher Ed summer series for novice writers or writers who are struggling to get some traction on their professional writing.

This week in “Tame Your Inner Critic” Rockquemore suggests ways to become familiar with and to disarm your inner critic, the naysayer inside many of us who thwarts our efforts to write consistently. (See The Imposter Syndrome.) She also offers a practical set of goals for this week.

Rockquemore notes that academic writers are in the summer “home stretch,” but suggests that even if you have not been successful in writing regularly so far, you still have several weeks of potential productivity.

Write. Now.
