Esther Hammelburg and Aris Emmanouloudis started weekly Shut Up & Write sessions, and invite other PhD candidates to join. Every Tuesday morning from 9-12 we shut up and write together in a (UvA-secured) Zoom session. This means 3 hours of putting away all distractions and focusing on PhD work. We do advice to take small breaks in between – you could use a pomodoro timer – but stay away from distractions such as news websites, email and social media during the allotted time. It truly helps focus and progress. The sessions also provide a chance for meeting other PhD candidates in RMeS, especially now we are working from home.

What a session looks like:
9 am camera and mic on for check-in: share what you are working on and goals
—-
Write! Mic muted, camera on/off following own preference
—-
12 pm camera and mic on for catch up: share about writing experience and review goals
