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.

Describe your writing process/routine.
I like to start early writing an intro, even if I recognize that it will likely change extensively as I continue to write other sections. This helps me build a case for the importance of the work for myself and connect the work to other important work I’ve read of done. If I am writing with others, this also sets us up early to negotiate the framing of our work. I usually continue linearly through each section of the paper, so I feel like I really have a strong sense of the literature and theoretical framing I plan to use. I tell myself that I want to get so invested in the paper that there is no turning back!

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