As I will be on an archive trip for most of the month, my aim is 20,000 words. I don't care what they are: notes, chapter content, ideas anything. Just 20,000 words by the time I return home at the end of the month to build on.
5,000 words a week.
1,000 words a day - Which equals 2.5 pages in my notebook.
Most hours each day will be spent in the archives but in between document delivery and at night in the hotel I will write.

My goal is to submit my dissertation as a manuscript for a journal.
My plan is to write everyday for at least an hour.
I was unable to write everyday for any length of time. :(
I started planning for my JPA submission on the teacher responsibility paper (EFA and CFA)
My writing time I am counting as the time I spent reading my reviews from my two AERA rejections.
I spent my time today writing about all the ideas I have concerning early field experience research and how I can answers some questions using my EDUC2130 class. :)
No
Today I check out new journals, like TESOL Journal. This could be an alternative if TESOL quarterly does not pan out.
I copied my old files unto my new laptop and stumbled upon some old research that I would like to resurrect. I spent my time today thinking about it and checking out a possible venue for the manuscript - Sexuality and Culture.
Set up a research meeting for December 1st to start a new collaboration.
Reviewed feedback from a rejected manuscript.
Found new journals to submit the rejected manuscript to...

Finish the DLaw PhD Proposal
Final edits to the ABS and Clinic Article (if not already done by end Oct)
Finish first draft of the autoethnography and ethics article

Added on: revisions to transactional clinic article
revisions to business clinic book chapter
500 words a day, not including Saturdays (or my birthday!)
508 words (but def did more - I just deleted a lot of other stuff as well)
629 words in 45 minutes. Boom! A good day. Wanted to write more but stopped to try and keep at an achieveable pace.
399 in the morning (1 hr). A slow start. Kept revising one paragraph. Drafting a proposal document is very different to writing an article where you can dip in and out.

Today, I received significant revisions for an article I wrote during last AcWriMo. I have until 11 Nov to do them- eek! So I re-wrote the introduction on the evening and that was 1.5hrs and 623 words. Wondering if I can carry them over to tomorrow....? Or is that cheating?!
Slow start. Didn't get to do any #acwri until late afternoon - 459 words. Didn't feel great - much prefer writing in the morning.
Yay! A morning writing session. Got into work at 7.50am and wrote until 9.30am. 621 words. All revisions to the article due in next week.
Didn't keep a record. Rewrites of the tlc article all afternoon and most of the evening. Probably over 1500 words plus edits and references.
Carried on with edits of the tlc article most of today. Finished the conclusion just in time for X Factor!
Had a moment where I wanted to write so sat on the sofa in the kitchen and wrote what turned out to be the introduction to the PhD proposal. 683 words.
Back to the routine of coming in early and getting on with things without being disturbed. 7.33am - wrote until 8.38 521 words. PhD proposal.
Train delays - grrr. Got in for 7.50am, worked until 9am. Lit review section of PhD proposal 716 words but some of this needs cutting down at later stage.
Morning sesh again: PhD proposal Lit Review (which is now reaching 2000 words - oh dear, must learn to stop!). Started at 7.35, stopped at 8.35 with 727 words in the bag.
Delays on Metro mean a little late in this morning - annoying. Started at 7.48, finished at 8.57. 564 words: lit review of PhD Prop complete and now onto the next section. Starting to come together, although is now at 6000 words and only halfway through....Hmmmm
Annual Leave. Read an autoethnography article on the train to Hull.
Weekend at the in-laws. Day off.
Weekend at the in-laws. Day off, but did a bit of reading on the evening.
500 plus words on the PhD proposal. I've lost count as I'm editing as I go. Anyway, the epistemology bit is nearly done! It's still waaaay over word limit though. I hate having to do this in 'work time'. Cant gather my thoughts and its all a bit 'bit-ty'.
Revisions to book chapter for about an hour. Didn't keep record of words. Mostly looking up sources.
Hour and a half of revisions that kept stopping and starting. Have no idea how many words, but it's not much. Sat in a grump at 8.46pm staring at said revisions, listening to Travis and eating too much dark chocolate. Bring back morning AcWriMo.
Revisions to book chapter 2 hours. Didn't keep record but finished the revisions. It's ready to send back now :). Ahead of schedule! Now if I can only get this proposal and other article done... Getting the feeling that the AE article may have to be a work in progress. Revisions have scuppered it.
Birthday. Birthday boxing day. Birthday new year.
back to morning writing - yay! Not so early this time though. Editing the PhD Proposal 8.30-9.30am
another 8.30 - 9.30 PhD proposal edit. Switch between thinking its nearly done and its nowhere near done.
Mini writing retreat - 3 hours writing the AE article. Lord, I love writing the AE article. It's just too much fun really.
Does an abstract count? Wrote a conference abstract. Over 500 words, needs cutting down. No other writing today, was a yucky admin day.
Finished off the abstract. Wrote my appraisal form for 2 hours - surely that must count!?

I have two writing goals or AcWriMo:
1. Develop a cohesive dissertation proposal. This means that I need to put the literature review and three empirical studies together, and write-up an introduction integrating all chapters.
2. Revise and resubmit my article that is currently under review. This involves figuring out the strategy for revision, revising the manuscript, and writing-up the response to reviewers.
My plan is to write for 5 hours at minimum for each working day, from Monday to Friday; 2.5 hours per day for the weekend.
My goal is to start writing within 2 hours of waking up each morning.
Start my day by taking 5 minutes to write in my research journal.

Re-write the middle sections of my DDD paper.
I am going to do 1 section a week.
Week 1: Background (including new literature)
Week 2: Conceptual model
Week 3: Empirical model and data
Week 4: Results
Decided I'm not going to work on the weekend unless I get way behind on my goals.
One of those days I don't even get to start thinking about writing until 5pm. This week is going to be a struggle. Today I picked up my essay and re-read the background section. I think I now have a better idea of what I need to do analytically before I can cut down the background more.
Writing-wise I didn't get a lot done, but I did a lot of modeling and conceptually, I feel like I am on a new, much better track for my writing.
More modeling, outlining, and theory-building today. I'm a little behind on writing my background section, but hopefully I'll be able to catch up next week.
No writing, but a lot of thinking about how to improve my paper and make it more impactful for broader audiences.
Life got in the way- no writing
WeekendWeekend
Writing every work day is much more difficult than I imagined it would be, but I'm proud of myself for at least getting in 30 minutes today. I started to reorganize my paper around what I think are the new most important parts. Still working on the Background, but its starting to be more coherent.
Writing this background section is like pulling teeth. I think I only wrote a paragraph today, plus a little bit of editing. I know that at some point, the whole thing will just melt together, but it's frustrating in the meantime.
Another half hour on the background and conceptual model. I'm moving a lot of paragraphs around, cutting unnecessary information. I still figure I need to add some new information but overall cut these sections by about 50%.

What an interesting month. The Full Professor application-what a surprise. I got it done! I am on my way. What I always wanted. About the goals. 1. Got COMPASS edits to Michael Sanger, will meet with him about thepaper. 2. Submitted TIES conference proposal-Implicit curriculum 3. I did hear from Stan Witkin. Did I reply to him? 4. Did not finish IRB. It is now December 3.
1 hour reading for Implicit curriculum and student engagement and student organization piece that we will submit for TIES conference. Looked at links from librarian for Survey research books. Read the article Halim sent me on Exploring the lived experience. This would be great for social work interviews-especially after talking to the social workers with child welfare experience. I love talking to social workers about what they do-an idea from David Harrison many years ago. A positive spin on what I did for facebook "My writing time today was filled with bright and shiny and sparkly ideas. Bright, shiny and sparkly ideas about social work."
Went to the library! Organized my thoughts a bit, I am ready to finish the IRB for field resource survey and the proposal for the TIES conference. This would be a facebook post about writing time today "Returned to main campus to Odum library, printed, checked out books, walked for 25 minutes and saw and visited with dear friends. Don't miss Pine Hall, but I miss Main campus"
A day of meetings-morning meeting, afternoon meeting, late afternoon meeting and class. Class energized me and that is a good thing! I want to do about 15 minutes of reading the books and articles I checked out before I go to bed.
Finished consent form-sent to Mizan and Carrie! Emailed Kathy Sundin about the drawing. Tomorrow to work on the instrument! Field resource survey.
I did over 16 minutes of work on the survey. I need to continue the survey tomorrow. Carrie thought the consent form was good. I'll need to send the survey to Carrie. I have some questions for her.
Worked on the application for Full Professor. Took lots of time.
Worked on the application for Full Professor. Took lots of time.
Worked on the application for full professor. Took lots of time.
Finished the application for full professor-ready to get back to my other writing.
I spent a little over 20 minutes working on the survey. Next I need to send an email to Carrie to see if we can meet. There are some categories that I still am not clear on, and I would like for the format to be slicker too.
I also need to see when the TIES proposals are due.
I worked on the TIES proposal for 20-25 minute. I was stuck for awhile, but came up with a good title.
"What about us? Distance learning students and community engagement"
NoneNoneNoneNone
Back again-worked for about an hour on the TIES conference proposal. I hope to get it submitted.
Finished the TIES proposal and sent it out.

2 hours of writing on non teaching days, excluding weekends
Stopped on 11/13.
But project 2 and 3 accomplished (project 3, the revised article, got accepted too!). Project 1 on hold, co-author delay.
Not that bad, considering.
This is a weekend day. But reading done.

Full teaching day
4 hours of writing (yay), Intro and conclusion of article-to-resubmit (project 3) done. Also, unexpected last minute edits on a non #AcWriMo chapter, but that's still writing and getting it out. Good. Reviews late, though.

Write a chapter for an edited collection. It's due at the beginning of December, so I have to finish it this month whether I want to do it or not!
The chapter length will be around 6000 words. I've got about 2500 words written already, but there's still background reading that I need to do, and I'll want to do a fair amount of revision before I send it off. Also, I'm going to be traveling and seeing family over Thanksgiving weekend, so ideally I'd like to have a relatively polished draft finished by November 20th so I don't have to spend the holiday weekend revising. So my goals are: 200 words a day for the first 3 weeks of November, then revise.

I'm perennially short on time to write, thanks to a full-time job and a daily commute. I'm going to commit to writing for at least 15 minutes every morning, though.
About 300 words (some of which I accidentally erased and can't get back again, STUPID TEXT EDITOR, AAAAAARGH!).
286 words. This project keeps spawning research rabbit holes.
272 words, and I have a decent, if slightly boring, opening paragraph!
309 words! Not much in the grand scheme of things but I feel like I'm hitting a groove now that I'm making a point of writing every day.
0 words. Couldn't make myself concentrate. :(
0 words.0 words.
566 words that probably won't make it into this article but I wanted to get them out anyway.
No time to write!176 words.No time to write.148 words.
No net word gain, but a lot of chopping and rearranging, so I'm still counting it as progress.
About 100 words net (after making some cuts to the previous word count).
337 words!
Something like 500 words!

My goal is to consistently spend time every day on research, because lately I've found it difficult to consistently devote time to research.
30 minutes a day, 6 days a week.
rest day!
30 minutes total. Decided on 2 main tasks: write part of simulation study paper, finish simulation code. Found an outline I wrote back in APRIL of said paper, transcribed outline to LaTeX, filling in some details.
30 minutes total. 692 words added to "Simulation" section of paper. Also figured out 2 new things to add to the simulation code.
30 minutes. 758 words. Helped me figure out parts of the simulation I haven't thought through yet.
30 minutes. 364 words. Tackled a tougher section so harder to write, more thinking.
0 words. Spent 30 minutes sketching the connectivity state diagram, which really helped me solidify the system logic.
Rest day!
65 minutes, 0 words, very productive lit search!
35 minutes, 0 words, finished yesterday's lit search (tracked down remaining articles, put in another request to ILL, did a bit of prioritizing of which papers to read first)
30 minutes, 1044 words (mostly copied and pasted and then edited from NSF grant + workshop papers). Worked on System Model section. Discovered scenarios in a previous paper! Will use these as starting point for simulation scenarios.
30 minutes, 0 words, 2 figures made, started on a third.
45 minutes, 0 words, 1 complicated figure made and almost completed. Left self in good starting place for tomorrow.
30 minutes, 0 words, 2 figures.
Rest day.
Grading derailed my writing plans! 0 minutes, 0 words. :(
Back on the AcWriMo bus! 30 minutes, 590 words, converted some figs to PDF (and made minor mods).
45 minutes, 0 words, 1 brand new diagram, 2 modified diagrams.
35 minutes, 274 words, 1 new diagram.
30 minutes, 639 words, 4 scenarios sketched!
0 minutes, 0 words. Drafted a review letter instead. :(
30 minutes, 610 words, 3 new scenarios, updated state diagram. Productive!!
Planned to write but was too tired. Rest is important too, right? :)
30 minutes, 492 words. Started to draft sabbatical research plan.
30 minutes, 345 words. Finished my sabbatical timeline and started making Gantt chart. I love a good Gantt chart!
90 minutes, 0 words, one (finally! finished complicated Gantt chart. God I hate struggling w/ Excel.
30 minutes, 707 words. Fleshed out some more of the sabbatical plan. Wasn't planning on working as it's a holiday but insomnia hit.
55 minutes, 1122 words! Updated Gantt chart, finished sabbatical plan.
35 minutes, 236 words, 1 figure. Unfortunately as I was writing up the figure in the simulation study paper, I realized a huge flaw in my logic, so I will have to throw everything I did today out and start over tomorrow. Oh well, at least I learned something!
30 minutes, 257 (revised) words, 1 (correct) figure. Fixed the mistakes I made yesterday.

1) Work on and finish my draft paper for a conference on the 19th and 20th of November.
2) Work on the book I am editing (it's at its earliest stages - go over the manuscripts, send for peer review)
3) Revise a paper that has been languishing for almost a year (procrastination, big time)
Balancing teaching and research (and the occasional committee work), I set out the above 3 goals for me this AcWriMo. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, I plan to set aside an hour to write. On Mondays and Fridays, I plan to set aside at least 2 hours to write. On Saturdays, I plan to write for at least 4 hours. I intend to have Sundays as break days for me.
I have to be honest and say that I have not achieved much this month. I managed to start on my conference paper, but the conference was moved to March, so I left it and went on to work on other things. I manaegd to work on the book I am editing. I have not yet started revising my paper though. My teaching load and a weeklong absence due to a business trip has made it difficult for me to achieve my golas this time, but I also realized that I need to improve on my time management skills and schedule a non-neogtiable writing time everyday even for an hour.
This was a Sunday so I did not get much writing done, but I managed to prepare for a class lecture the following day.
Was off-campus due to an errand connected to an upcoming business trip then had to prepare for my lecture. I managed to start contacting and updating contributors to the book I am editing.

Finish the final chapter of my book. (If I manage this and have time left over, start revising previous chapter)
I have 7 days without teaching in the next month. I plan to use these days to work solidly on the chapter. I currently have c18,000 words in draft form. It needs rewriting, the final section adding, so it should be c.25,000 when it's finished. Ideally I will also spend 30mins-1hr a day on the other days either planning, footnoting, or thinking about the chapter.
Spent an hour reading through and revising intro and section 1 on DP and context.
Spent morning writing up changes, wrote 500 new words, found Magnif Eccles text, added some new material in Durandus section.

add in 1,000 words to chapter 2
add in 1,500 words to chapter 3

total of around 21,500 words over month
Work full days Mon, Tues and Wed, at least 6 hours a day aim for at least 1,000 words a day plus planning and thinking time = 13,000 words minimum
Thursday - Stirling, try and think, admin, socialise, reading
Friday - 500 words = 2,000 work at least 2 hours

Weekends and evenings to pick up slack in hours

30,000 words total.

10,000 words on my dissertation prospectus
15,000 words of summaries, notes, and practice answers for a prelim
5,000 words other: Op-Eds, blog posts, etc.
I cannot write every day. I never work on Sundays so that I can spend time with my wife and newborn son. Mondays and Tuesday I have limited time to write (maybe only a few hundred) and then my week slowly begins to open up. This is my plan.

1. Integrate my writing into my weekly GTD review and calendar.
2. Set goals for the week, scheduled into my days with specific word counts on my three areas, and clear time out to make writing a hard commitment like any other.
3. Use the GTD weekly review to evaluate where I failed, succeeded, and what I can do better each week.

I have 4 upcoming projects for my courses:
* Implement a complex algorithm.
* Perform a survey relating my own research field with Computer Architecture.
* Develop a bussiness plan for a cell phone app powered by IBM Watson.
* Write a report for a graph database implementation which georeferences geological characteristics.

I think that I will be able to produce publishable research (posters) from:

* The IBM Watson app report.
* The graph database implementation.

I also have two pending research efforts, which I want to fulfil:

1. Complete a brief survey about how to translate data base constraints in an ontology (brief paper).
2. Produce a poster about an interdisciplinary field trip I attended (poster).

These I will try to complete during december.
Write whenever it is possible.

-Finish introduction of handbook chapter
-Start paper on physiology experiment (abstract, intro (hypotheses) and method sections)
-Write outline, abstract and intro for preferences and differences in absorption paper
-Write 2000 words on attention and absorption review paper

Back up goals:
-Training school plan september
-ITN proposal plan
I want to start each day with 2 hours of writing (or 4 pomodoro's) and whenever possible find at least another hour (or 2 pomodoro's) in the afternoons as well. Hopefully this will allow me to write a 1000 words per day, so 5000 per week.

I have one holiday in november and 2 two day conferences, plus I refuse to work in the weekends. It will be hard, but I want to try to achieve at least 4 of my goals to feel satisfied.

Write a good thesis chapter and have another one drafted up (structure sorted, rough guide to each section AND an introduction written)
This will mean all my empirical chapters are either written in a full draft format or have a structure with introduction.
I want to have 4 productive half hours every working day. So totalling 2 hours of writing productivity Monday - Friday.

I want this AcWriMo month to help me get in the habit of writing everyday (again). It has lacked throughout October.

Submit finished book manuscript (aim = November 14)
Start working on Fellowship proposal
Start working on Book no. 2 proposal
(Edited to add: Also, to blog about my research and #AcWriMo, goal is 1 blog post per week)
Write every day (including weekends). Time/words not important - quality more important.
Finished my book.
Made huge progress on next project in unexpected ways.
Around 30 minutes of writing and organising chapter six (currently two chapters, needs to be one chapter by the end of the week). A slow start, but happy with where I'm at for the rest of this week at least.
Manuscript word count: 82,124
Finished final chapter of book manuscript today (which I thought was going to take all week...) Have added an appendix of previously written work (which I was unsure whether would be necessary or not, but turned out to be). That will need to be edited, and conclusion will need to be written.
Manuscript word count: 91,728
Feel good about progress today, although it has been mainly thinking (and typing Greek...). I wrote my pre-observation form for the class I am having observed on Friday. Deleted a few now unnecessary appendices from my book manuscript, but have just been thinking about the conclusion - the final hurdle!
Manuscript word count: 83, 724
Some thinking, reading, and jotting ideas for conclusion/epilogue today. Wednesday is normally my day off so I am pleased with this. My goal was to write every day, and I have written today, so I can't really complain!
Less work than I would have liked today - around 800 words of the conclusion. Did have a 1.5 hour lunch and went out for dinner instead of working, so not as good as I would have liked.
Yes, but - my health deteriorated and my child got sick, forcing a change of plans half way through.
Taught most of the day, but did fit in some reading and light editing on a paper copy of the conclusion.
More light editing on paper copy of book conclusion. Saturday is my day of no work, so very happy I snuck some in today.
Last few days have not been as productive as I would have liked, so I am feeling a bit down at the end of week 1. Managed a little bit of editing today, but would have liked to finish the weekend with a draft of the epilogue.
I have finished the writing parts of the manuscript. I will do some light editing after dinner but leave most of it for tomorrow. It should be done and dusted by the intended submission date of November 14th.
Finished the manuscript! Am having the epilogue read though, so will perhaps need to do some more work on that on Friday or Saturday, but otherwise done! Spent the afternoon at a workshop so no AcWri.
An ill child at home meant no work today. I am going to do a quick read though of an article I'd like to finish that's been cast aside for a while, but I won't do any writing. That's okay, these kind of days happen!
Spent much of the day editing a much neglected article, and watching the Odyssey. Afternoon was spent at the Odyssey reading, so no work.
Teaching all day, and very tired from last night, so no AcWri at all! A very failed day today.
Today was meant to see the completion of my first AcWriMo goal (submitting book manuscript for review). I didn't, for several reasons not to do with not finishing the ms. It is finished (except for a few light edits, which I am waiting on from a reader).
Wrote image captions today, which I had been putting off.
Did brief reading and editing, not as much as would have liked.
Monograph is now finished, but not yet sent (waiting for editor to email reply). Today drafted a blog post that I will tidy and post tomorrow. Have started work on proposal for book number 2.
Mainly work on my HEA Fellowship application. Also a bit of work on my Book 2 proposal. But no where near as much as I would have liked. Unhappy with progress this whole week.
Nothing today. Day off with Child and usually would do a bit after bed but too tired today.
Fairly good progress thinking about research proposal. Some writing, lots of thinking and reading.
Surprising amount achieved today (reading and note taking mainly), given teach all day on Fridays.
Took the weekend off.Took the weekend off.
Some work on proposal, mainly note taking and thinking.
Some work on proposal, and on HEA Fellowship application (getting ready for proper writing!)
Day off with sick kiddo.
HEAPS of reading and note taking today! Have revised goals, and feeling happy about progress.
Taught most of the day today, but made a lot of notes for a Friday!
Nothing - spent the day with my kid, who is still getting over cold.
Ditto yesterday.
Some progress on conference paper, but not as much as would have liked due mainly to tiredness.

Wrote out my tasks for the upcoming week. I carried on with my current chapter draft but quickly found it exhausting. I will spend an hour tomorrow morning continuing to insert quotes before settling down to do the spreadsheet. In fact, I might open the spreadsheet now and get going on that before calling mum...

Complete a book chapter draft for submission.
2500 words a week should get me over the chapter requirements and therefore into editable shape. If I'm lucky, the draft will be completed in the first three weeks, leaving the last week for editing.
I completed a draft of the book chapter. It did not hit the 8000 word limit, but at 6500 words, it fell inside the acceptable bracket. Also, on days in which I didn't write on this project, I revised another article MS I had, which I submitted to a journal on 30 November.

I plan to write 500 words a week . I would like to spend an hour a day writing, but I think it is more likely that it will be an average of 5 hours per week- plan for 30 mins on Mon and Tues , and then 2 hours on Thursday and Friday. That is an average of 100 words a day.
