Session Information

Been quarantined lately? Do you find yourself wishing you had the: time; interest; energy; inspiration; motivation; dedication; organization; or know-how to get those papers started, worked-on, finished, and submitted for publication? Yes, writing is hard! But in academic medicine, writing is your job, so do your job every day! In this active and engaging panel presentation, you will see how three different faculty members dispel common writing myths. You will learn a multitude of techniques to overcome your personal writing barriers, including: I don’t even know how to get started; I have trouble starting; I don’t have the time to write – I’m too busy; I have trouble finishing my papers; I just need a few more _____ (hours, patients/samples, analytic models, emails from co-authors…) before I can finish it…and others! At the end of this session, you will have identified at least three things that you can do right away to get you over your writing hump and onto the road of scholarly productivity.
