Be It Resolved: Write!

In addition to losing weight, exercising more, and keeping in better touch with friends and family, have you also resolved to write more this new year?

In an editorial in Clinical Nursing Research, Pamela Z. Cacchione outlines some “Publishing Considerations for New Academic Faculty,” reminding us of the value of placing writing in our schedules, including cultivating a daily writing habit.

Writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, Rob Jenkins advises readers on “Writing with a Heavy Teaching Load.” He suggests that faculty commit, organize and prioritize, schedule, be patient, and repurpose.

  1. I actually HAVE added writing more to my resolutions this year. I hope to work on some manuscripts as well as more personal writing. I have found some great tips in the book “How to write a lot” as well.

  2. Glad to hear it, Jordon. Paul Silvia’s How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing is frequently recommended. Faculty find it very useful. http://www.apa.org/pubs/books/4441010.aspx
