In this month's episode Jes and Max are back to lead a brief daily session in a follow-up to last month's episode about mindful writing.
For this exercise, find a writing project and a timer, and follow along through the four steps: prepare, write, pause, reflect. To get the most out of this brief daily session, we suggest first listening to WriteCast episode 34, "Taking Care of Yourself With Mindful Writing." Below, listen to A Brief Daily Session Walk-Through--Mindful Writing (Episode 35).
Here's an overview of Episode 34 along with a link to that episode if you missed it last month!
Taking Care of Yourself With Mindful Writing (Episode 34)
How can we apply qualities of mindfulness—such as acceptance, compassion, body awareness, and being present in the moment—to our academic writing? To kick off the new year, Brittany and Beth talk with writing instructors Max and Jes Philbrook about how using mindful writing improved their dissertation experience and how students can get started creating a sustainable, mindful writing practice.
