Workshop: Writing, procrastination and resistance

August 5, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Do you keep putting off your writing and waiting for large blocks of uninterrupted time to get it done? Do you regularly engage in procrastination and avoidance when it comes to your writing projects? Have you ever wondered why it is that you really want to write but just don’t do it until there’s a looming external deadline?

If so, this workshop is for you. Participants will learn:

  • What resistance is and why academic writers experience it in pursuit of work they want and need to complete.
  • How to identify what's holding you back from writing and completing your grant proposal or journal article.
  • The three most common types of writing blocks and how to move around them.
  • How to create the type of community, support and accountability for your writing that will help you to move from resistance into writing.

Facilitator: Mindi Thompson, PhD, University of Wisconsin, Madison through the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity.
