Academic Writing - AUT Workshop
This evening, I participated in the Academic Writing - AUT workshop. I've been studying at the tertiary level for 25 years and have been told on many occasions that I am a good writer. For the most part, I enjoy writing and find it easy to discuss dialogue, debate topics - I think this is because I am a really good talker (I talk lots!). However, in my recent task for MEdLead thesis I found it incredibly difficult to keep to my wordcount (wrote too much) and found it challenging getting to the point (the longest sentences you ever did meet!). Hence, after 25 years of studying, I decided to go back to the basics.
I really enjoyed the workshop and appreciated that part of why I. need to work on is planning out what I am going to say, before actually putting pen to paper. I enjoyed this so much, I'm heading back for the reading workshop next week.
