Last Tuesday I finally graduated from University. Although I passed my viva last December, and I’ve been working as a Post Doc (and as a writer here) ever since, on Tuesday it was made official.
It’s strange. I vividly remember the graduation ceremonies last year. I was in the thick of the writing process and I never thought that my turn would come. I mean never. I could not contemplate one second of my life after having finished my thesis. I was totally consumed. Finishing it seemed like an impossibility.
But finish it I did. It wasn’t an impossibility, I worked hard and ultimately it happend. I used to hate it when people would say, “don’t worry, you’ll get through it”. That usually made things worse. I always thought “yes, you made it, but what if I don’t?”. I’m obviously not going to do that to you now but it seems fitting to give you SOMETHING on my graduation week.
Big projects are coming this way
I’ve been working simultaneously on a few big projects to add significantly to the blog. I’ll be sharing more details soon, and I always give out the info a little earlier to the people signed up to my email list.
So what have I got for you today. Well it’s a free eBook and you don’t even have to sign up to get it. It’s a collection of posts that I wrote mostly as I was going through the process of writing up. It’s called “How to improve your writing” because these tips actually helped me as I went through the writing process. This was inspired by a Tweet by @DrAlJasem who asked if I had such a resource. I realised that I did but it wasn’t all in one place. I decided that the best thing was to put them all into a book that could be downloaded and shared easily. This won’t be the first of these resources either. There will be more in the coming months.
So without further a do, here’s the book and if you like it, and you would like to hear more about the new projects (and potentially get to test them out before anyone else) then please sign up to my email list below. You’ll also get access to the literature review toolbox.
