To make things easier, you’ll find links to those posts below. They are divided into three themes: where to write, how to write, and doing a PhD.

where to write 

These posts tell you about the time I tried writing in my kitchen, in a cafe, and in a library.

how to write 

I’ve taken part in Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo) for the past two years.  In 2014, I wrote about starting AcWriMo for the first time and changing my AcWriMo goals. In 2015, my AcWriMo posts tell you about dealing with unexpected revisions, trying out a routine,  and the week it all went wrong.

This post tells you how to write more in less time by being Dino-mite!

I wrote 8 articles (and a book chapter) in a year. This is how I did it.

I talk about Scrivener, an alternative word processing tool. This post explains how I use Scrivener for academic writing. This post lists the three things I learned the week I switched to Scrivener.
