About this Session

Writing time is precious. Even without the pandemic stresses and distractions it's also often either interrupted or wasted at least in part in procrastination. This workshop is an opportunity to review our own writing habits; to explore and practice writerly techniques that can help use precious writing time more efficiently; to set up realistic and imaginative daily routines; and to analyse when it’s best to ease off and when to press on.
