November is Academic Writing Month (#AcWriMo)! It is a great time to start (or restart) your writing project.

Getting started can be a challenge. We have to think through key questions about potential readers’ needs and interests and clarify the purpose of the article or post, chapter or book. We need to be honest with ourselves about writing skills and habits– and look for ways to improve. If the writing project involves a manuscript that has been languishing in the nether reaches of a back-up drive, we must re-imagine the contributions the finished piece might make and re-discover our enthusiasm.

Over the course of the month, we will be sharing posts, Tweetchats, and open access resources from SAGE and other curated sources. Don’t miss out! Join Methodspace to receive announcements, or follow @SAGE_Methods.
