Writing Tip from the Graduate Writing Center

Let's get physical!

If you’ve hit a writing block, it can be helpful to print off a physical copy of the piece you’re working on. You can bring it with you to a park or a cafe and use a colorful pen or marker to go through and edit. Reading the physical copy, drawing your edits and being in a different physical environment–without your computer—can give you new perspectives on the work and lead to different edits and adjustments.

Dissertation Boot Camps and Study Halls help you finish chapters in a distraction free zone.
