Many academic book authors love writing while others want to write but are reluctant about the writing process, the work load, and the sacrifice. Susan Robison, a self-professed reluctant author, addresses those issues and other practical topics such as defining the purpose and scope of the project, managing the tasks and the time during the writing, improving your writing as you go, and when to ask for help, in this recorded webinar now available on the TAA website.

Here’s what participants of this webinar had to say:
“This is one of the best webinars I have ever registered for. I am a new member of TAA and the information was worth its ‘weight in gold.'”
“This was an extraordinarily useful seminar. What I particularly liked was the combination of practical advice with specific structure,use of other experts knowledge and room for tailoring to one’s own situation.”
“Wish I had read her book and heard this webinar years earlier. Much of what she presented I discovered on my own through a process of trial and error, with lots of errors along the way.”
