Getting Ready to Write Next Summer
No, it’s not too early to get started. There are two pieces of the undertaking that you can deal with now so that you will have more time to write in the summer.
First, pick a topic. As you think about your topic, you may refine it, abandon it, or come up with a better topic.
2. Get going on your research. If you can get all or most of your research done in the coming months, you will be way ahead. Also, as you engage in the research, you will find reason to rethink your topic, revise it, or move on to a new topic. In addition, you will have the opportunity to think about what you want to say and about how you want to organize your article.
Summers are surprisingly short. It pays to start now.
