Never Write Alone


Are you the person who sits alone in the coffee shop with a laptop and a cappuccino, waiting for a writing fairy to hit you with the magical dust of motivation?

That’s ridiculous.

You should never write alone. Why? Because it’s lonely, and writing doesn’t have to be so darn sad.

You know enough to realize that it’s helpful to have people near you, cheering you on and sharing their progress as you slog through those tasks you’ve been putting off for months, right? There’s even research on that!*

Nowadays we have so many tools at our disposal. There’s no reason to feel as though you have to go it alone. With so many communication websites and software options, why would you? We love Slack and Zoom for their ease-of-use and quick connectivity. If you join us for one of our free monthly Online Writing Retreats, we’ll teach you how to use them.

Here at Quick Brown Fox, we know what you’re going through. We’re academic writers, too, and we truly get how isolating it can feel to spend a whole Sunday by yourself, trying to push through the drafting of an annual review or finish the discussion section of your latest co-authored masterpiece. We do this all the time. Trust us: it’s so much better to write with friends.

Join us next month! Sign up now and commit: or fill out the Google Form here. Hope to hear from you soon!
