How to Write a Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All students and professors need to write, and many struggle to finish their stalled dissertations, journal articles, book chapters, or grant proposals. Writing is hard work and can be difficult to wedge into a frenetic academic schedule. In this practical, light-hearted, and encouraging book, Paul Silvia explains that writing productively does not require innate skills or special traits but specific tactics and actions. Drawing examples from his own field of psychology, he shows readers how to overcome motivational roadblocks and become prolific without sacrificing evenings, weekends, and vacations. After describing strategies for writing productively, the author gives detailed advice from the trenches on how to write, submit, revise, and resubmit articles, how to improve writing quality, and how to write and publish academic work.

Book News Annotation:

Never mind your inner writer; this guide focuses on bolstering your outer writer with a schedule, clear goals, and good work habits. Silvia, author of several books on psychology in the arts, shows struggling writers in psychology and other academic disciplines how to overcome roadblocks to writing in this lighthearted, practical, almost- pocket (5x8") guide. Covering strategies for time management and motivation as well as basic style, he gives advice on how to write, submit, revise, and resubmit journal articles, how to improve writing quality, and how to write and publish academic books. B&w cartoons and a list of useful books on writing are included. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
