This week, I've been trying to get back into the habit of writing. I've read heaps of books about it but I figured now was time to stop reading and do.

Writing is something I find quite difficult. Not getting the words on the page, but getting them to sound eloquent, intelligent and actually making sense. I feel there is a lot more pressure for thesis writing, even though I know anything I write now is not going to be included in it's present form in my final dissertation. I just have had some bad experiences of academic writing.

Maybe it's my own form of imposter syndrome. I got a first class degree, which means I must be alright at it, but I am convinced my writing is awful. This makes me very nervous about writing anything, and I'll draft and redraft something several times before I even hand it in to be reviewed for the first time by my supervisor.

However, knowing that a lot of people say it's just down to practice, that's what I'm trying to do. I don't have a huge amount write about now, but I'll write about what I can and fingers crossed by the time I'm having to write the bad-boy itself I'll be less scared and more "Hell yeah!"
