Constructive Procrastination and a Healthy Writing Process

Wednesday, January 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Susan Spilecki, Lecturer, WCC, Rebecca Thorndike-Breeze, Lecturer, WCC

Enrollment: Limited: Advance sign-up required
Sign-up by 01/15
Limited to 25 participants
Prereq: none

Society tells us that procrastination is bad, when in fact it can be a useful part of the writing process. In this workshop we will brainstorm all the specifics of our individual writing processes, from beginning of a project to the end, discussing the usefulness of different strategies for different people.

By reflecting on the way individuals actually learn, synthesize ideas, write and revise, we can make our own processes more effective. Getting to know what you need for your particular process puts you in control of it, rather than letting it control you.

In addition to gaining a better understanding of your existing writing process – and how you actually procrastinate constructively – participants will leave with resources and tools to better manage your process.
