This new year is going to be exciting and hopefully busy for me. This spring I have a research-intensive semester (i.e. no teaching); next fall, I have a sabbatical.*
And for me this means a year of writing. I have a book ms due at the end of the year.
I’m going to use this blog to help keep me on track. Starting next week, I’ll be posting in my weekly blog entry the number of words I’ve written in the previous week.**
Consider this an open thread to discuss both writing strategies and things you hope to accomplish in 2012.
Happy New Year, y’all!
* These are actually meaningfully different arrangements, at least at my institution. I have my full service load this spring. I’m not even allowed to serve on university, college, and departmental committees next fall. This spring, I am also expected to be present on campus as I would be in any normal semester.
** I’m only going to count words that are part of the book, of course. No credit for blogging, commenting, and Facebooking!
