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.
Most of my scholarship is based on empirical work, and less conceptual/theoretical in nature. Therefore, my writing process actually begins when I’m conceptualizing a study, getting familiar with literature and thinking of the types of questions I want to ask/explore/know more about. And then considering what conceptual or theoretical framework would be best to inform the work; which is reflective of my own epistemology and ontology. This all happens a bit simultaneously for me, while considering the methodological approach and data sources.

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