Writing Across the Curriculum/
Writing in the Disciplines
for Students

 Keep moving.

It is totally normal and ok if you get stuck during a work session. Just move on to something else work-related. You can refer to your to-do list and your list of brainpower tasks for ideas. But don't stop working--keep moving through your list.

This is helpful because people are far more efficient when they're actually working and not just staring at a screen. It is also gets so much easier to work during work time if you associate work time with getting lots done without tons of pain.

Next: The more often you write the easier writing should get. ->
