Don't break the chain!

I was having a major writer's block. 

I stared at the blank page on the screen for hours. Kept on flipping on the printed journal papers on my desk for hours.

Still nothing.

Then I found one of the videos on PhD and thesis writing saved about a year back titled "How to Finish Your PhD Thesis in 6 Months Even if You Have No Idea What to Write". So I spent my lunch time watching and listening to the video, hoping by the time I finished listening, I finally know what and how to write.

The first tips given by the speaker, Scott Rank from thescholarpreneur.com is;
 DON'T BREAK THE CHAIN. 
He mentioned how by writing EVERY DAY, even a non-academic, non-PhD related, would help the PhD thesis writing eventually. 

Just keep on writing.

If possible, have a daily writing target or goal to meet.

Just draft whatever you can think of.

Write, write, write.

"A simple habit to help you write every day."

So, here I am - writing.

Hope this is the start to a longer (non-academic) write up and eventually the journal paper and thesis writing.

(And hope to regularly update this blog again, too. :P)

....

Wish me luck, guys!
