Writing Schedule

At the moment, my writing schedule for the week looks like this:

  • Sunday:
    • Morning writing session to review my Substack post and work on academic articles for 1-3 hours
    • Publish a note on LinkedIn about the last Substack post
    • Send a Tweet about my last Substack post
  • Monday: AM or PM writing session for 30 minutes to create a weblog post.
  • Tuesday: AM or PM writing session for 30 minutes to create a weblog post
  • Wednesday: AM or PM writing session for 30 minutes to create a weblog post
  • Thursday: AM or PM writing session for 30 minutes to create a weblog post
  • Friday: AM or PM writing session for 30 minutes to create a weblog post
  • Saturday: Morning writing session to write a Substack post and work on academic articles for 1-3 hours

The most straightforward part of my planning trifecta (research trajectory statement, writing schedule, and upcoming research plan) of thinking about what I’m going to do next is really the writing schedule. It really just details my plan each week to sit down and be productive at the keyboard. For better or worse that means tracking in advance what my weekend mornings are dedicated to working on and how that time will be best spent. My writing schedule can be summed up as a simple look at weekends vs. weekdays and what needs attention.
