#AcWriMo Day 8 Report

I have been making progress on my book proposal. The process of gathering all of the necessary elements and writing the proposal itself has taught me a lot about my book. I now feel that I never know what I am writing until I have to summarize it into an abstract or one sentence. Doing this make you focus on what are the essential aspects of your work.

I did not get all the chapter summaries finished (most of them are done), but I did get the cover letter almost complete. Needless to say, my word count goal did not suffer. Today I’m going to complete the chapter summaries and the cover letter.

Here is the breakdown of the daily goals:

501 words (goal met)
3 blog posts (goal met)
4 x 2 hours blocks of writing (goal met)

Remember you can find all the information for AcWriMo you need here on PhD2Published’s site. They also have a lot of other good posts on writing geared towards PhD students and newly-minted academics.
