How to Write A Lot: A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing, Paul Silva. Psychologist Paul Silva has studied the research on how academics write a lot. This is a fast-paced book packed with very practical ways for you to be a productive academic writer AND not using your evenings, weekends or vacations to get all that writing done. These are proven strategies designed for academics who MUST write a lot and often struggle to do so in a sane and productive way. Highly recommended reading and sharing with colleagues. Silva does not tell you what to write. Christians who want not only to write a lot, but do it from a Christian view of the world will need to think that through. But this book should help Christian academics produce writing projects to help the Christian community as well.
