Most useful textbook and academic posts of the week: April 29, 2022

×
There are so many aspects to academic writing, and a lot of it is centered on self doubt and, of course, an attitude of discovery and learning. Octavia E. Butler reminds us aspiring authors, however, that “You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” This week's collection of articles includes practices, tips, tricks, and secrets for building an effective writing practice. Further, it includes advice on building relationships, finding your publishing avenues, and tackling discussion and debate. As you continue developing your craft as an academic author, stay persistent, learn from others who have been there, and before you know it you will be writing "good stuff" yourself. Happy writing!
