Unstuck: The Art of Productivity is a self-directed online course devoted to changing your writing habits and getting your work from stalled to submitted. The course is divided into Twelve Steps to Productivity (Think recovery from bad habits!) Each step is devoted to 1) moving you step by step through the standard parts of an academic publication and 2) creating a writing practice for ongoing success.
In this course, you will learn the hows and whys of writing barriers, the steps to creating a writing strategy that works with YOUR life and best of all, easily manageable steps to getting your work out the door!
From the first day of the course, participants have the opportunity to advance their projects while rebuilding a supportive writing practice.
In addition to a Just for Today “practice,” which is simply an idea to consider about your thinking and approach to writing, the course content includes a brief posts and coaching videos offering concrete guidance on how to reach your goals. (Focusing not "how to" but "why not" and more importantly, how do you begin to change your patterns.)
More than tips and tricks for writing, The Art of Productivity challenges you to examine your writing process, identifying your mental roadblocks, applying those insights to creating a new skill set, and finally practicing those skills in a way that overwrites your old patterns.

"In the last couple of months, I completed my book revisions and wrote two articles. And submitted all of them. And as I wrote, I became happier with what I was writing and could relax and enjoy the meandering process of deep thinking through writing that inevitably takes me to unexpected places. And also, as I wrote, particularly through the book revisions in my response to the readers’ comments, I found a stronger and more confident voice. I learnt a whole bunch of ways to keep the feelings of overwhelm under control, which feels particularly timely, as I’m on my first year of a full-time job."

My writing system has fundamentally changed since I started this program. Today I sent to my co-authors a new manuscript that I wrote from scratch. I just want to express my gratitude for all the change and progress this program have offered me. To many unstuck days (and shame-free weekends)!
