I'm currently writing a doctoral thesis and I often struggle to get my thoughts on paper. I've attended writing courses, seminars, workshops, etc; the full works. My writing has definitely improved both technically and stylistically, but my rate of writing needs more work. I will use this forum to document my progress as I strive to increase my productivity. I am trying to adopt a rise and write routine. For the past week, I've been able to write around 150 words in an hour during mornings. I want to ramp this up to 200 words and to be very consistent (daily writing). So here I go!
