Shut Up and Write (for PGR students)
Wed 04 December 2019 14:00-16:00
David Wilson Library, Postgraduate Reading Room
Our aim in these sessions is to:
- Keep the writing sprints short. Use the Pomodoro Technique (a pomodoro is a 25 minute stretch of focussed concentration). Between the pomodoros, take as much time as the group would like to drink hot beverages, talk and eat. We will have one person willing to act as “Pomodoro chief” who will do time calls
- Work on anything, so long as it’s work — transcription, analysis, reading, organising your notes – even email (although we don’t recommend it). No exercises or judgment remember? The only rule is to be silent when everyone else is.
