Writing a lot
You can' t talk about quanta mechanisms or worldwide terror, but you can talk about a diploma theses. In this sense I present our first discussion of the work. Some time ago Paul Gruba, co-author of "How to write a better thesis", suggested a Paul J. Silvia novel entitled "How to write a lot".
I' m sorry to say from this point that his destiny was similar to many of the books I borrowed - I scanned the first few pairs of pages for the keys ads then put it on my TBR (stack to be read). Like most of the TBR book, "How to write a lot" stirred up a lot of dirt until the book was bothering me to give it back.
I went to the bookstore to get inspired for my next writing from play to chapter workshops last night, packed with the obsessive anxiety of being boring that sometimes educators get. So I took the textbook and took "How to write a lot" to the streetcar.
When I got to my stop and became an addict, I came to page 44. I have a violent standardized way of reading literature. When they are dull and difficult to understand, the individual should not try to try to write to you. It reads, as they say, like butters.
There is no such thing as an academical writer's deadlock in Paul Silvia's text. Says that, just like those who believe in UFO kidnappings, only those who believe in writer's obstruction are likely to get writer's-blockade.
Notice that Paul Silvia, the keys to typing is to plan a lot of extra work. However, if I give you the feeling that this is all there is to this volume, I would sell it briefly. Silvia is a shrink and makes some perceptive (and rather uncomfortable) observation of scholarly behavior.
Especially the pretexts we talk about our incapacity to write as much as we want. As an excuse (definitely my favorite), we don't have much of a spare second. Bullshit, says Paul Silvia. This is because we don't take the necessary amount of written planning with all the other things we have to do.
It reproaches many university graduates for being'binge writers' who think they can only finish their paper if they have a long period of doing so. They can be prolific during a vacation or week-end. Silvia points out that this could be one of the causes why graduates are hard to marry.
Silvia herself is confessedly obsessed with his planned write times and write every weekday from 8 am to 10 am. I am sure that there are many of you who are like me - able to be very prolific authors if they are really driven. As I was completing the final design of my diploma dissertation, I worked full hours and could not write until after 7:30 pm when my 7-year-old son was in the sack.
To write at nights was just torturing after a whole days letter at work, so I made a deal that I had to make at least an hours a time. After all, he even goes so far as to use SPSS tables to keep a record of his number of words.
Perhaps one way to get past academia is to get closer to the way you write your dissertation by following your power supply and delivery? However - go and see "How to write a lot" - if you can take the initiative.
