Writing Afresh – creating a new relationship with your writing

November 12 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Recognising the disruption of this past 18 months, this live coaching writing day will invite you to establish a new relationship with your writing. Writing is integral to PhD life and yet, even when there is empty space ahead, it can be hard to get going, let alone sustain momentum. Perhaps you come up with all sorts of distractions. Convince yourself you need to read more or analyse the data further. Maybe hold back through fear wasting time going down the wrong track. Or worry you’re not doing justice to the complexity of the ideas you’re grappling with. It can all get so heavy, and so much is at stake. How difficult it can be to feel satisfied with your writing, like you’ve done a good day’s work! Too often is time lost through realising you have too much to do, that you’ve set unrealistic goals, you’ve not the space you thought you had, you’ve lost confidence in what you’re trying to do, or you’re just too tired! It doesn’t have to be this way.

Through a series of live coaching writing experiments and focused writing, the day will introduce a method for ensuring, when it’s time to write, you write; explore the importance of separating preparing, drafting and crafting; and themes such as setting intentions; realigning vision and purpose; managing fear; being present; seeing mood as perspective; writing with joy, confidence, creativity, focus and rhythm.

You’ll come away having got some writing done and with strategies to develop a productive and balanced writing habit.
