You can't continue to work this way because graduation, tenure, or promotion is on the line. You need to be able to set aside YOU time, time for you to connect with your project, get you out of your way, and move your project forward.
"I want to create something like this at my institution!"
You could benefit from a concrete and specific place to show up monthly that allows you to set aside a specific chunk of time to write.
You could benefit from designating your writing priorities so the time you set aside is not wasted.
You could benefit from getting help when you get distracted, stuck, and/or in a rut.
Your Write Crew provides
"This afternoon I turned off the email and internet and got in a good couple of hours on my book proposal which . . . I think is nearly ready to be submitted!"
The Write Crew allows you to:
"This is a game changer for me - I have the project close to the front of my mind so I don't get as much inertia and the fact that something happens beats a lot of the guilt demons!"
The Write Crew is easily worth over $5000 per year! However, that is certainly not what you would pay. So what do you need to do?
I am a true believer in social writing. When I thought I was going to step out onto the academic job market, it was with social writing that I could pull together not only a writing sample, but also a draft of an article for academic publication. I have encouraged academic writers to find their niche with other writers who understand how challenging it is to make the sausage and the particular challenges of writing.
I also am a true believer in coaching. I have seen how coaching has systematically moved me out of my way so I can achieve what I set out to do, be it in writing or in business. I love helping academics transform their personal and professional lives with this tool.
Your Write Crew pulls both of these components together for writing success.
"Having Michelle as my coach provided structure, accountability, and time for reflection."
No, but payment will not be waived in a given month. Further, skipping retreats will not help you move your project forward, and that's what you want the most.
Included with Your Write Crew is a Zoom room where we will meet for the monthly writing retreats. You can easily use it on your laptop, and if you download the app, you can use it on your tablet and/or phone. You can also call in by phone.
