I just came across an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education titled, 10 tips on How to Write Less Badly [H/T Geekpress]. It is not that I agreed with every point being made there but a couple of them (To become a writer, write!; Find a voice, don’t just get published) really connected with my personal experience. The comments at the end of the article add a few good ideas as well… overall, an article well worth reading, particularly for graduate students who are still working on developing the routine and on finding their own voice.
