Book Description

This text offers a plan to help those who have blanched at the prospect of finishing a long piece of writing. Eviatar Zerubavel describes how to set up a writing schedule and regular work habits that should take most of the anxiety and procrastination out of long-term writing, and even make it enjoyable. Zerubavel argues that the dreaded "writer's block" often terms out to be simply a need for a better grasp of the temporaral organization of work. This book rethinks the writing process in terms of time and organization. It offers writers a simple yet comprehensive framework that considers such cariables as when to write, for how long, and how often, while keeping a sense of momentum throughout the entire project. It shows how to set priorities, balance ideals against constraints, and find the ideal time to write.

UK Kirkus Review » The romantic ideal conjures up an image of the author, creativity in full flow, turning out screeds. But the key to effective writing is planning, and the secret of success lies in organization, as this author shows. Discipline and flexibility are necessities, plus a calendar and calculator to check the time available. There are outlines on how to monitor a week's progress to judge optimum working time, including odd spare moments to tackle other tasks such as filing. Another good idea is to use wallcharts to work out the time available, making progress visible. This short and handy guide contains all you need to know. (Kirkus UK)
