208: Interrupting Default Practices To Create Sustainable Change

2/27/2024
Have you ever found yourself on autopilot, cruising through familiar roads without consciously realizing it? I recently had one of those moments, and it got me thinking about the power of default mode. Our brains love defaults – those ingrained habits and routines that save energy and reduce decision-making. But here's the catch – default mode isn't just about driving; it extends to our writing practices. Many academics operate in default mode when it comes to their writing, and this can lead to a backlog of papers, projects, and missed opportunities. So, how do you break free from default mode? Interrupting default practices is a transformative process, like adopting a new fitness routine or a healthier eating habit. It requires effort, but the rewards are well worth it. Are you ready to give your writing the attention and effort to break free from the defaults that may be holding you back? Listen to learn how to take the first step in breaking free of a default writing practice! For full show notes visit scholarsvoice.org/podcast/208.

206: The Role of Writing Retreats in the Soaring System

2/13/2024
In today’s episode, I share the role of writing retreats within the context of the Soaring System—a method I've developed for cultivating a sustainable and relationship-based writing practice. I highlight the significance of writing retreats in the Soaring writing system, addressing common misconceptions and showcasing how they can be a powerful catalyst for deep, focused work. I emphasize the benefits of physically removing yourself from everyday surroundings, reducing decision-making fatigue, and providing an excuse to focus solely on writing. Finally, I release the details of our upcoming Spacious Writing Retreat set in Ocean Park, San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Spacious Writing Retreat is catering specifically to women and non-binary professors. We have especially curated a beautiful venue, supportive community, and professional coaches to facilitate a transformative and productive writing experience!

190: The Stages Of The Academic Career (They're Not What You Think)

10/17/2023
The perceived stages of an academic career are very linear and do not capture the responsibilities, workload, or goals within a professorship. I have worked with hundreds of professors, so I have a unique perspective on the academic career. So, in today's episode, I explain the REAL stages of a professorship. Tune in as I compare and contrast the perceived stages of an academic career to the real stages. My goal is to shift your perspective about how you think about your professorship. After this episode, I hope you can check in with yourself and see where you are in your academic career and where you want to go. From there, you can see what you can check off as already done and where you need to put more energy, focus, and development to have the academic career you desire.

As an academic writer, the ultimate goal is to have a flowing publication pipeline to build influence and notoriety in your industry. However, you won’t consistently publish articles or write books without a sustainable, relationship-based writing practice. In today’s episode, I share how long it takes to change your writing practice from binge writing and procrastination to consistency and productivity. You have been a writer your entire life, so creating long-lasting change won’t be fast or easy, but it will positively impact your career, work-life balance, and mental health. Tune in to hear how awareness and skill-building can lead to a change in your writing practice. For full show notes visit scholarsvoice.org/podcast/189.
