Summer’s Here: Make Progress on Writing Projects

Summer has officially arrived in the Northern Hemisphere, when many faculty have reduced or no teaching, so it’s a time to make progress on writing projects.

Theresa MacPhail writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s Vitae admonishes that we make a realistic writing schedule:

“Stop thinking about your writing in terms of large projects . . .
Set up a realistic writing schedule and then (mostly) stick to it . . . [and]
Writer, know thyself.”
