It’s that time of year, when grad students everywhere force themselves to vomit the contents of their brain onto paper in the most eloquent and intelligent way possible. If you’re like me, this process is painful, tedious, and more often than not soul-crushing. Don’t get me wrong, when the paper is done there IS that sense of accomplishment (which I suppose makes it all worth it), but that doesn’t change the fact that in the midst of all the academic writing there is little to no joy… at least that was the case until I discovered Written?
