Daily Writing (But Not Too Much Daily Writing)

Writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Vitae professional development website and for her own blog, Tanya Golash-Boza reminds us that cultivating a daily writing habit is a evidence-based practice that produces healthy professional outcomes.

She offers ten ways you can write every day: http://getalifephd.blogspot.com/2010/05/seven-ways-you-can-write-every-day.html.

But she also observes that there is a point of diminishing returns (which is why what Robert Boice calls “bingeing” doesn’t work well): https://chroniclevitae.com/news/691-on-writing-sometimes-less-is-more.

She suggests one to four hours of writing at a stretch.
