Blog

New blog design soon!

If you are visiting this page after the 16th of May, you’ll see that the site has been updated! Look out for a post explaining what’s changed later in the week!

This weekend, we’ll be going offline to make some exciting changes to the look and structure of Research Degree Insiders. The blog hasn’t had a refresh in years, and new stuff has been added. It’s harder to find things, and there are challenges on the back end too.

This blog has been going since 2013, which is basically forever on the internet. So I’m excited to give it a refresh!

I’m also looking forward to the opportunity to explore some new options, like adding a newsletter and an easy link to get in touch if you’d like me to run an academic writing masterclass at your university.

Thanks for being part of the Research Degree Insider’s community and we’ll be back live on Monday.

The “Writing Oxygen” and other tales from inside a writing house

Writing has technical aspects, sure. You need skills, and training. And you need to be organised and disciplined about keeping up with deadlines and juggling projects. And writing has physical challenges, you have to sit and use your back and wrists and neck and eyes. But, you also bring your weird, inner, non-rational self to the desk when you write. The inner self that has views about what music you can listen to, or that you need to enact your writing rituals before typing a word. There are good reasons why you might like what you like, but a lot of it just is personal preference, and that is totally a great reason to take it seriously.
