A short post on my new PhD article planning and writing workflow on iPad Air 4 with Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil.
Systems for creative, academic writing.
I have been noticing a sharp decrease in my productivity during pandemic isolation - even during a hotel writing retreat. Working from home during a pandemic makes it essential to protect key habits with time blocking.
