In this day and age there are so many ways to get encouragement and inspiration, from Facebook to Instagram. But where is the love for graduate students? Especially on the oh, so amazing concerns, such as writing?
Well, give the Cornell Productive Writer listserv a gander!
I don’t remember how I found it, but it is a simple and brief weekly email with various suggestions, ideas and tips about how to become a more productive writer. I like reading them to get an insight into how and why some of my habits are they way they are but I also enjoy seeing that writing pain is not only my own. It’s refreshing to have some honest advice on how to be a better writer and make progress in your program.
An aspect of this blog that I hope is helpful is to offer an honest perspective and advice of a science PhD and higher education in general.
