I have set some crazy goals in the past but this month’s goal is REALLY crazy! I have decided to be part of #AcWriMo (Academic Writing Month). I read this article and the writer seems to share my thoughts about academic writing. Even though I love writing, as an early career academic I still have a lot to learn in terms of getting published.
However, I feel now is the time to push myself and bring it on! So here’s my goal- I have three papers at different stages of completion which I have found a reason or two for not completing. I’ll work towards completing them by the end of the month, I plan to stay focused doing at least 4 pomodoros every day. I recently installed the digital timer on my PC from here.
I hereby publicly declare my goals through this blog post and I also did at this amazingly helpful blog, we coincidentally have similar goals! I count on the support of the #AcWriMo community.
