Dissertation Writing Tips: Perpetual Editing

Hello colleagues

This week our focus is on the concept of perpetual editing. Whether one is working on their dissertation or publishing an article or book, editing is simply part of the process. Writing is very much a personal process where there are many potential ‘right ways’ around the mulberry bush. While there are often writing format standards such as APA format or MLA, Chicago Style or Turabian, writing style is always personal and subject to perpetual editing as we continue to improve.

I have found that if one can separate oneself the person from oneself the writer AND learn to accept feedback graciously as a gift, often this idea of perpetual editing seems to be easier to accept and address. Perpetual editing is simply part of the process of writing.

Be sure to share your strategies of how you address this concept of perpetual editing with us. We look forward hearing from you.*Smiles*

With respect,
