What do you do with an idea?
You let it churn and brew and regurgitate in your mind. You find people who may be interested and pass the idea over to have it churn and brew and regurgitate in their minds as well.
I’m going to apply for another research grant. So far I’ve already put in quite a number of hours just to get the approval to submit a full proposal by early July.
Aside from this grant application, I have 2 manuscripts to revise and a new paper to get out by end July. Sometimes, not sometimes, often times, the thought of all the planning, thinking, reading, and writing is very overwhelming.
I try to work outside the campus, just to get away from my office. I can plan and read, but I don’t think I am productive writing-wise, in the library. I think I write better at home, with music, with some self-talk as I think through how to phrase the sentences. However, free flow internet at home is also a major distractor.
I just hope that no major admin work comes my way the next 2 months.
