Some goals for this week:

1. Finish full rewrite of PP paper except for discussion section (hopefully get that done, too)

2. At least 30 minutes writing each day

3. Make 1 new figure

4. Revise 3 other figures

 

Positive news: Forcing myself to focus on PP paper for 2 hour chunks last week got me back into it.  I'm now proceeding much better than I was.  Phew.

My goals:
- read 2 articles in journal
- spend 2 hours editing paper

Not sure where the 2 hours are coming from, as DH has a meeting tonight and is on a business trip the rest of the week. Maybe Saturday?

Bumping to ask - is there a current thread like this anywhere?

As far as I know, this one just kind of fizzled out.  

 

I did sign up for a program on-line (Academic Writing Club by Academic Ladder), and it was actually pretty helpful.  Same idea as here - you set short-term goals and have a group you report to each day.  But you have to pay for it. 

 

(I was somewhat pleased to see that I have finished 3 of the 4 goals I put up at the beginning of this thread, and a little bummed that the Rav paper still isn't done...)

 

I'd be up for joining a new thread again if others are interested.

I don't post a lot here but I thought of just starting a new thread that anyone who wants to can use. I have a lot of catching up to do on writing and other work and could use some accountability.

 

Going to start new thread now...
