Today I spent 3,5 hours writing. The result is 85 words of text. And I didn’t even write them myself. I copied a quote and made a bibliographic entry for it.
But guess what? Eighty words a day turn into 500 by the end of the week and 2,000 by the end of the month. In 4 months, you’ve got your article, all ready to submit. Three articles a year, and you are a paragon of scholarly productivity in the Humanities.
That’s how I get to publish so much. A little bit every day is better than nothing every day. And it doesn’t usually take 3,5 hours to come up with one quote. I started a new article today, and that takes a lot of reading and thinking.
