Writing Tip from the Graduate Writing Center

Limit your writing time!

Especially if you find writing to be challenging, limiting the amount of time that you write can actually be very useful.  Many people write all of the “easy” parts first and then don’t know how to tackle the harder sections.  But limiting your writing time means that you’ll always have more easy things to work on, while you’re still researching, outlining, or developing the harder sections. (Of course, this isn’t a license to just forget about all the background work that goes into writing!)
