The writing begins.
by Ellen Girod
After my multiple science oceans dives, i became a research-junkie. Researching and reading is like a drug, the more you do, the less you get satisfied. And the more youre longing for. But 24 may is coming, and my personal scientific coach, my dearest husband, gave me a piece of valuable advice: stop researching, start writing. Giving up on google scholar and mendeley, was like being dried out, heavy times. But it was the best advice i could have recieved. So after the reading, the writing follows. The scientific writing. Heres my check list of my ZHAW-learnings: Tentative statements, full form words, nominalised phrasing, passive voice, third person pronouns, no clichés. Heres a good artikle on third person pronouns: http://www.guardian.co.uk/higher-education-network/blog/2013/apr/19/academic-writing-first-person-singular?CMP=twt_gu
And heres a nice one (for all ya research-junkies out there) on how reading improvs ones writing skills: http://www.prdaily.com/Main/Articles/The_most_enjoyable_way_to_improve_your_writing_ski_14300.aspx?fb_action_ids=10151350702393344&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%7B%2210151350702393344%22%3A555115997861963%7D&action_type_map=%7B%2210151350702393344%22%3A%22og.likes%22%7D&action_ref_map=#
