Writing Productivity Tips for Academics

When a student has a term paper to submit along with assignments on other courses, it would be quite difficult to produce an excellent piece of paper for every task that is assigned. Being creative every time is not a piece of cake and it is easier said than done. Despite all that, many writers are victorious in being original and innovative whenever they have to deal with any kind of paper. The following guidelines may help to bring out originality and productivity in your writing:

  • Writing on a daily basis for at least two hours straight is a practice that is helpful in increasing one’s abilities further. Don’t leave out weekends, even.
  • Taking out time from your professional engagements that require a full time involvement from you is a must to give your mind some rest and for fresh ideas to set in.
  • Getting help from a team of research assistants specially assigned to you is a blessing and if such a facility is available, make the most of it by letting that team pool in ideas for you.
  • Dealing with several projects at the same time with different topics also brings out the writer in you and then you would be very well capable of tackling those topics of diverse interests. If you are working on the same project for quite some time, your mind may become static and bored.
  • Track your own progress by marking out projects that need to be worked upon and submitting the ones that have been completed. Submitting a paper that you have carefully checked and proofread enables you to get a valuable feedback from others and also enables you to make future changes if necessary.
  • A cluttered table represents a cluttered mind, hence make sure that you organize your workplace in such a fashion that everything is accessible to you when you are all set to work. A good office environment enables you to be motivated to work and be creative at the same time.
  • Organizing and then reorganizing your workplace at regular intervals is necessary so that you can set your priorities accordingly and let go of stuff that is not needed anymore.
  • When you learn to say NO to things or engagements that conflict with your schedule, then you will feel much at ease and are able to think more carefully.
  • You may get discouraged when a few of your papers may get rejected, but you should learn to keep going and try finishing the ones that are in the pipeline instead of sulking over the ones that have been rejected.
  • Pamper yourself when a paper is completed. It could either be having a dinner or a night out with your friends. Your mind gets relaxed and stimulated to have fresh ideas due to this.
