Obviously this is not an ideal situation for an academic to find themselves in.
However, I suspect it might be true.
I think it was my PhD thesis that killed it for me…I think…I don’t like writing.
I tried to rejoin my Daily Writing Group but this time it didn’t help. I did co-write an Editorial for a journal = big success story! (Editing other people’s writing was much easier than writing my own work.)
Luckily it is teaching time now, less expectation to write. Brief, brief reprieve.
Definitely time to make good friends with my blog again. I like it here best. And people tell me they read it! (I hope people will be glad to know that they are not the only ones who don’t like writing.)
Other things I have been doing instead of writing:
- reading fiction
- organising multiple conference papers
- answering emails
- playing MW3
All worthy occupations!
Maybe I’m just in thesis ‘recovery’. I mean, surely.
Just have to find the right motivation…
