Rockquemore’s “New Year, New Habits”

New academic year, that is…

Kerry Ann Rockquemore’s latest Inside Higher Education series focuses on the tenure track, but there are clear traces of her helpful writing strategies. I appreciate her focus on future goals and her weekly reminders to make time for writing. My semester work plan is sketched out on three dry-erase monthly calendar boards; hopefully I won’t be erasing too much, but since unexpected opportunities and responsibilities are bound to come up, I’m trying to promote flexibility in my planning.
