Hi folks, it's really do or die time for me to write up my work. I still have difficulties sticking to the task and constantly procrastinate with writing. What I have found helpful was Shut up and write style workshops.
I am trying to find one like SUW Tuesdays which is moderated on Twitter. But their twice a month schedule is way to infrequent for me.
Any suggestions? Or anyone here wanting to get on board some virtual writing workshop?
This is a great idea! I'm up for it! Writing is now do or die for me too.
Not sure how it would work online either! We had this at Keele, and it does work well. Just about helping the discipline of sitting and writing for a period of time. Twice a month probaby not often enough, weekly is ideal. TBH might work solo - sit in a coffee shop with your laptop?
I am interested guys, will keep an eye for feedback on how the online version works. Hello, DocInsanity you do that at Keele? Wow! Please, how can I get in touch so I can be part of it. I am studying at King's College London but leave local to Keele so tend to use the library a lot.
Hi guys! So the idea behind SUW is to force ourselves to commit time to writing without distractions. With my attention span to make any gnat jealous, I tend to get so distracted in coffeeshops I would never get anything done.
So there's a group which is run on Twitter #SUWTues which happens every 1st and 3rd Tues of the month. The moderator calls out start and stop times along with breaks and follows the pomodoro schedule (25 min work; 5 min breaks). Here's the link explaining it.
I have found it useful in real time but again need to be in a room by myself and facing a wall! So I envision doing the same if anyone else is interested but maybe connecting via a phone app or Facebook messenger (or similar, if the group is more than 2 people).
I would be very interested in joining in with this if you end up setting up an online version - I hope to be writing full time from June onwards and have until Sept to submit, and currently only a half drafted thesis! Please keep us updated ruffles :) Thanks.
Sure Tulip! Hope to power through this thing myself! Will PM you.
