When I was a starry-eyed, freshly graduated doctor, I had wild ideas of publishing tons of papers, and I wrote a post about my plans for writing on this blog.
And then life happened - or better: a 3-3 course load without help of a TA happened, and I had to refocus and reframe.
By now, I've developed a decent workflow process to keep my papers moving forward (the good old: write first thing in the morning, and write daily). Admittedly, there are days that I can't spend an hour or two writing, because I have last-minute class prep to take care of. And I don't write on the weekend (more class prep, usually). But all in all, I write 3 - 5 days a week, and try to get 6 manuscripts out per year.
With my new insights, I wrote a guest post for the publisher Wiley. Please check it out, and let me know how you work on your papers!
