In her continuing weekly series in Inside Higher Ed, Kerry Ann asks “What’s Holding You Back?”

How is my semester going so far? How much writing have I completed? Have I developed a daily writing routine? How am I progressing towards my semester goals? and How do I feel about my answers to the previous questions?
She identifies common obstacles: technical errors (in scheduling time to write), external realities, and psychological obstacles (which are perhaps the most pernicious).
