Tips for writing – some guidance from Tim Harford


Just a quick post for anyone in the throes of writing a dissertation or thesis for college- although some of you writing a large business report may also find this useful.

The biggest problem a writer often faces is to actually write. There are so many other things you can do during your day – your (real) job, family, socialising etc.  Of course, there are a few things you can do. My biggest tip is to follow some advice given to me 20 years ago now while in secondary school ” a little and often”.  Have a look at what Tim Harford – author of the Undercover Economist – says on a recent blog post. It’s pretty sound guidance.
