Coaching in book form, the Short Guides series is:
- SHORT (<10000 words): you don’t need another book on your To Read list
- PRACTICAL: advice accompanied by writing prompts to help you use the advice (and adapt it to your unique circumstances)
Short Guides are designed to be dipped into as needed. You might read right through it when you first get it but the idea is that it’s accessible and you use the section you need whenever you need it.
Intended to help you when you are stuck, each Short Guide focuses on one area of your academic life, complementing advice with writing prompts to help you apply that advice in your own particular circumstances. You are a writer. Writing is how you process your thoughts. I encourage you to actually write out answers to the questions.
Available in ebook (.mobi or .epub) or print format from your favourite retailer.
The Scholarly Writing Process (Short Guide 1)
Published November 1, 2016
Getting stuck is a normal part of the writing process, even for experienced writers. My aim in publishing this Short Guide is to help you generate new writing projects, keep your writing projects moving forward, and ensure that your writing process results in publications. Designed so you can refer to it whenever you get stuck, this Short Guide breaks down the scholarly writing process into stages and provides both a description of that stage and writing prompts to help you get unstuck.
