About this Episode
Julia and Jonathan dive into the topic of writing, including when in a project we tend to write, some common challenges, and approaches that have worked for them (and which may, or may not, work for you). Some handy tricks involve phrases like “reverse outlining”, “word vomit”, and “parenthetical REF”. Jonathan has the most boring game ever to help him write. Challenge for the week: Find a paper that inspires you to write well, and share it with someone.
