I wrote about writer’s block, what it is and how to address it, over on the blog for the Research Education and Development team at La Trobe University.
Each revision, taking on board questions and concerns and advice and changes, takes my work a little bit away from me. For me, this is a good thing! Unlike this blog post, which I wrote, editing and published myself (hence the fact that there are often typos!), academic writing for publication has been read and commented on and changed by multiple people over multiple stages. The article or book goes from being ‘my’ work, to being, in some way, ‘our’ work.
This is a very long read that takes a few paragraphs to get to the point. It’s a point other people are making all over
Inger just wrote a really good post over on the Thesis Whisperer blog, about how, right now, we are in the middle of a disaster.
