Finding a topic for today’s post was a bit of a challenge. I looked back through the suggestions on the Daily Post Blog, and none really inspired me. I looked at a list of blog ideas I made while my brain was really churning a week ago. None of those grabbed me, either.
Some of the ideas on that list were ones that I would consider more appropriate for my more “professional” blog. Which, by the way, I have been neglecting whilst I have been doing this daily fifteen minutes and working on a paper that has an external deadline.
The fifteen minutes has been working for me as a warmup. Except for yesterday, when I took a break from the paper. That break was actually part of the writing process rather than an interruption of it, if that’s possible. I had shifted the prose from Scrivener to Word the day before, and instinctively I felt the need for a fallow day. On that writing project my task today will be another read-through for focus and a conclusion. If there is time, I will complete the citations. My goal is to send the paper off no later than Monday.
One question that arises for me now that I have more than one blog is about writing as multitasking. How many projects can I keep going at once? A lot of the advice about productive academic writing–and perhaps productive writing, period–is that it’s a good idea to have many projects going at once.
Time. More tomorrow.
