Do you have a paper to complete, conference presentation tugging at your conscience just waiting to be transformed into a paper, or have you recently completed a project and the report needs written, got a book chapter waiting to be written? What’s stopping you? Need to set deadlines and get some moral support achieving them? Then #AcWriMo may just have come in time…
The 1st of November sees the start of academic writing month which is a public scholarship project lead by Dr Anna Tarrant. Academic writing month or #AcWriMo was started last year as #AcBoWriMo and based on the Novel writing month. The idea is to make public declarations of writing targets for the month of November on the PhDtoPublished and “call in” with your progress at regular intervals via twitter using the #AcWriMo hastag or on the PhDtoPublished blog site.
I have made my declaration on the blog and also posted to my own PhD blog
Thinking, great idea but rubbish time of year? Well there is never a good time so why not joining in and see how you get on?
Remember we also have the monthly silent writing sessions on the first Wednesday of the month from 8am to 1pm on the fifth floor of the library in Sighthill and the Crofters Club at the last Monday of the month so you can get some face to face contact too.
