Our fourth week is upon us, which means that we’re just about a quarter of the way through our summer writing adventure!
ProfHacker has another round up of posts on writing, with an emphasis on tools. Some of the authors really like writing with text editors, and I’ve been using one called Byword to do some of my non-dissertation writing, including my summer syllabus and assignment sheets.
Here’s everyone’s goals for the week:
Sarah: Continue to spend time with finding aids for the upcoming research trip, keep processing NARA biz, and clean office space.
Dan: Twelve pomodoros on Monday, eight on Tuesday, twelve on Wednesday. Edit chapter draft for style and copy during flight on Thursday, submit chapter Friday.
Carly: Look at records in DC, work through interview transcriptions at SHAFR. Work on draft of ASLH paper.
Holger: Finish primary source notes and go through at least two more secondary sources by Thursday. Gauge interest of university presses a SHAFR, and avoid crying otherwise.
Meg: Catch up on paid work a develop syllabi for fall. [And feel better soon!]
If you haven’t set a goal yet for the week, add yours to the comments. Happy working!
