Writing Prep

When the alarm went off at 5:15 this morning I quickly silenced it, spent a moment thinking about what I would write, and then rolled over to sleep for another 45 minutes.

Early morning is definitely my most productive writing time, but I am just not sure I am ready for early morning again.

What I did get done today is some good writing related reading. This fall our writing center will expand, and by expand I mean basically become two centers.  Of course I get  to run both without an increase in salary, but … well, that’s a different conversation. As we put together this new program, I am trying to be more deliberate about what the assessment of this program will look like.

Now, I know there are people out there who like to think about programmatic assessment because I am reading their books; however, I am not so excited about this topic, and sometimes it makes for some slow reading.  The book I’m currently working my way through, Building Writing Center Assessments That Matter is good, and I am finding helpful information.  The only problem is (and this is my issue with most assessment discussions) as I read I keep asking myself, “When? When does all this happen?”

Maybe it is just that with the addition of this new center I now run three different programs throughout the year. Maybe it is just that I have not become a Pomodoro master yet and therefore have not reached the zenith of my productivity. Whatever it is, I am left unable to imagine squeezing one more thing into my day.
