Learn Effective Writing Routines From Top Academics

What is my academic writing routine?

Writing can be isolating. We create, revise and refine all by ourselves in our minds, making decisions about every syllable, consonant, and predicate used in our writing. My Academic Writing Routine is a space that supports the growth of academics as writers. We strive to increase learning through the corpus of collecting writing routines and practices.

I block out time to work on specific papers, usually in chunks of 90 minutes to three hours. When the time comes to work on a paper, I block out distractions by leaving my phone in another room and firing up Freedom. That app allows me to block out distracting things (e.g., Twitter, email) but keep the things I need to work (e.g., Overleaf, Google Scholar).

Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.
