Welcome to the first week of Spring Writes! Pretty hurts; writing also hurts. Let’s make it less painful by setting incremental, manageable goals and keeping each other accountable! Okay! Here are your goals for the week:
Nicole: Finish revising a “revise and resubmit” paper. To get there, I have to gather info for the 3rd of 3 major topics ID’d by the reviewers as wanting (direct quotes/ data use issues). Info-gathering for the 1st of 3 (lit review / contribution issues) is done and the 2nd of 3 (policy info) is 98% done. I have to make the changes in the article itself for all three areas without losing the main point and clarity.
Sarah: Finish current chapter and send off one fellowship application by January 27.
Carly: Application grants, art stuff.
Dan: Monday is going to be a full teaching day, so I’m not setting a writing goal for that day. Tuesday is much better, so I’m going to set a writing goal of four pomodoros. Wednesday through Saturday, I’m going to set a writing goal of eight poms/day. Sunday I will do any class prep that I still need to do for the rest of the week, but I want it to be mostly a leisure day.
Meg: 8 hours of writing/day to finish journal article.
Ale: 1. finish this (*&*&^&*((*& complaint in one case I have
2. outline the idea for the law review article – right now I plan to write about Caremark issues in light of the financial crisis of 2008 and the lack of director culpability as seen through the lens of Delaware law.
3. reach out to law professors of mine who expressed interest in helping me get published (i’m five years out).
