I've got a fair amount of writing ahead of me in the coming months and I'm here to ask you all for some strategies for grinding some good writing. I know only of the pomodoro technique, which sometimes works for me, but I'd be curious and eager to hear of any other good tips people here have from their experience. Thanks in advance!
I think one key to successful writing is to make it a regular habit, to lose the fear of the white page. The pomodoro method is a good start. But anything that helps you to write regularly, even if it is just a few sentences you write every day. Setting up weekly writing clubs with peers and colleagues during which you concentrate on writing and discuss your progress or difficulties and support each other can also be really helpful. When I start writing I usually outline my report/paper and generate very detailed headers and section breaks which I then fill with text. It helps focus my thoughts and reduces the feeling of being overwhelmed by the thought of writing a longer piece of work.
