A few days ago, Chris Rowan (@Allochthonous) and Anne Jefferson (@highlyanne) from Highly Allochthonous called people to band together (digitally) for a month of science writing: #sciwrite v2.0! The point is to publicly set writing goals for yourself and post updates on the progress using the hashtag #sciwrite on Twitter. Quoting from their post:
With the idea that a little public accountability never hurt anyone, and that maybe having a community of people all going through the same writing process at the same time could actually help make life better, we'd like to introduce February 2014 as #sciwrite v 2.0. For the next four weeks, we’ll be committing to writing every day and sharing our goals and progress here on the blog on a weekly basis. We'd love it if other people joined us.
This is a fantastic idea!
I'm a little late to the party but here are my personal goals:
- Finish writing the corrections for the review I just got back.
- Finish the article about my software Tesseroids for the Journal of Open Research Software (JORS). This will be written in the open on the paper-software-tesseroids repository on the PINGA-LAB GitHub page. Feel free to make any suggestions/corrections/questions.
- Write another article for JORS about my Python library for geophysical modeling and inversion Fatiando a Terra.
Come join the party!
