…and get really down on yourself.
- Think about how writing a research article is really hard.
- Remember that there are plenty of good resources out there to help.
- Look up one of them, the much-famed Writing the Empirical Journal Article (1987/2003), by Daryl Bem.
- Read it.
- Nod along to it.
- Laugh/cringe about it, when it comes to the recommendations about “The Context of Discovery” when analyzing your data.
- Marvel at it.
- Realise that you still have a long long long way to go before your writing is that transparent and concise.
- Return to your own writing, feeling both inspired and glum.
- Get writing, in the hope that one day this list will stop at #7.
