I don't know about anyone else, but procrastination is one of my bugbears. I know that when I start writing I will enjoy it and get lots done, but I just can't make the initial effort required to start. Even though the thought of an 80,000 word thesis looming on the horizon causes me enormous anxiety.
Any tips, humourous, practical, spiritual or otherwise, for dealing with this problem?
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
