It can be hard to find time to write, and it can be hard to stay motivated; and having the motivation and the opportunity at the same time is another question entirely!
Joining an informal writing group helps you to address these challenges. Being part of a community of writers generates a sense of belonging and (minimal) accountability, which is good for motivation; and having a defined, regular time and place to write makes it easier to plan ahead.
This writing group follows the principles of the Shut Up and Write! movement. As such:
- it does not matter what you are working on (research, planning, blogging, CPD, reflection, personal project) so long as you are writing
- we do not read or comment on each others' work
- we take regular breaks
- we work very quietly, while writing, and set aside some time to socialise at the end
