November is #AcWriMo (academic writing month)! The idea grew out of the #NaNoWriMo (National Write a Novel Month) – Charlotte Frost from PhD2Published set up the academic version in 2011 and each year a community of scholars pledge to get on with their writing!

We thought that we would encourage Crit-Eventers to join in!

The PhD2Published website outlines the basic rules:

  1. Decide on your goal.
  2. Declare it!
  3. Draft a strategy.
  4. Discuss your progress.
  5. Don’t slack off.
  6. Declare your results.

(See the PhD2Published site for the full lowdown on the rules!).

Would you like to join in the #CritEvents challenge?

I have created a spreadsheet to declare goals and achievements so upload your goal and use #AcWriMo and #CritEvents to support each other. I have added my goals so over to you….
