Writing on a Regular Schedule


I finished writing the final edits to my Ph.D. dissertation today. Though I've decided against staying in academia and could have spent the last five years doing something more productive, I still consider it quite the accomplishment. At the very least I'll have considerably more time to devote to work, family, and adding to my website.

As such, it seems worthwhile to participate in the 100 Days to Offload popularized by Kev Quirk, the goal of which being to write one hundred articles within a year. I don't want to write simply for the sake of it, and I doubt I have enough original thoughts to fill one hundred articles. Regardless, it would be a good exercise to step away from scientific writing for a while and develop the habit writing regularly.
