The page a day project

Probably this would be no big deal for most people, but since I tend not to write at all unless I think I can get a huge chunk done all at once I have resolved this year to write a page every day. I hope that will allow me to ignore my inclination to save it all for a marathon session, as such sessions rarely materialize with my teaching load and the rest of my life.

I am not concerned with producing finished writing everyday so much as getting thoughts on paper. Likewise, while I plan to produce writing related to my two current projects, I don’t plan to hold myself to doing so every day. Some days my simply see me write about whatever I happen to be reading or thinking about at the time. If it fits into future work, great. If not, that’s cool too.

Whatever I write about, if I can produce 365 pages of writing this year (or likely more as I do hope to get in a few of those marathon sessions) that will be great for me and hopefully be the start of some better writing habits as well as greater engagement with the online academic community, to which I hope to contribute more than snark.

I will post my daily writing here, warts and all. Some days will likely include revisions of previous work, but I hope that there is something new in there each day as well.
