Welcome to this blog! This space will be devoted to academic writing, particularly research writing. Most people writing a long research document or a research article for a journal find themselves getting stuck at some point. I know better than anyone how demoralising that can be. The purpose of this blog is to provide you with a place to go to while you are ‘procrastinating’. Here (hopefully) you will find something that will get you going again.
I’ve spent a good part of my life working with post/graduate students and new academics on research and writing. Three books have resulted from all that experience. I firmly believe in creative activities to jump-start any lagging writer. I intend these pages to be full of useful, practical information about writing, research, conceptualising research, research methodologies, and creative (thinking and writing) activities.
Although I am still setting up the blog pages, I will begin posting.
