Don't Become Paralyzed!

All too often dissertating students become paralyzed at various times throughout the research process. Paralysis is when the student just can't seem to start writing; instead, they continue to search and read the literature even after saturation has occurred. Give your working memory a break! If you find yourself reading more than writing, consider yourself paralyzed. Memory recall will likely be limited when you finally do start writing, thus effecting the quality of the report. Paralysis can lead to writer's block and even absorb precious time to work on your study. This brings us to the issue of time management. I also hear often that it is difficult to find time to work on the study, given the many other tasks and responsibilities with work and family. Both of these issues are a normal part of the dissertation process. You just need to recognize when they are occurring and do something about it.  

Below are resources to help with both time management, writer's block and academic writing in general.
