AHA Dissertation Advice

The American Historical Association posted an aricle in 2006 giving “Practical Advice for Writing Your Dissertation, Book, or Article.”

Here are the basic points:

1. Set up a writing schedule.

2. Create a dedicated workspace.

3. Write daily in a dissertation journal.

4. Distill your argument into a single sentence.

5. Visualize your ideas.

6. Fuel your mind with exercise, nutrition, hydration, and sleep.

7. Cultivate community.

8. Rewrite.
It’s no magic formula, but with these points in place, it’s easy to move forward.
