Making Writing Manageable, If Not Enjoyable

Tweed Editing in CGU Pedant

The good folks at the Pedant, Claremont’s student newsletter, recently interviewed me about how make writing more pleasurable and routine (yes, both).

The issue is out, and I see that they’ve quoted me using un accent circonflexe—I feel so fancy! Other tips come from esteemed professors, a New York Times contributor, a writing-center professional, and procrastination experts. The takeaway is in the last sentence: “Writing may not always be heavenly, but it also need not be hell.”

For the full two-page article, “A Few Pages a Day Keeps the Malaise Away,” view the PDF of March’s issue.

Thanks to Pedant editor Rachel Tie for inviting my participation.
