We are within spitting distance of the finish line here at Summer Writes! This week I ran across Liana Silva-Ford’s awesome Storify and accompanying blog post of advice about managing the end stages of the dissertation process. Even though we’re all at different stages of our projects, I think a lot of the advice people offered is useful for any stage of a major writing project:
– be diligent
– establish a routine
– cut out distractions
It’s easy to forget–no matter how many times we remind ourselves–that writing is work. Clio and Calliope can be cruel mistresses, indeed.
On to our goals for THE LAST WEEK OF SUMMER WRITES! Leave your goals for the week in the comments, as always.
