How much time do you need

How Much Time Do You Need?

  • 3 months to write a proposal

    • NIH = 25 ss pages; NSF 15 pages; NEH

  • Allow 6 months to receive a decision

  • Allow 3 months to receive award (although your university may front you the money).

  • Allow for rejection/revision and submission to multiple funding agencies.


Establish priorities and act accordingly

Establish Priorities and Act Accordingly

Structuring your time without being tense helps writers find additional time to work and play. If you work with a sense of structured routine, with a present-orientation … with effective organization, and with persistence, you will be more likely to display higher self-esteem, better health, more optimism, and more efficient work habits. Without learning the language of time, you risk depression, psychological distress, anxiety, neuroticism, and physical symptoms of illness.

(Robert Boice)

First draft of Research Plan

Second draft of Research Plan

Write Daily > Log Your Work


Inventing freewriting

Inventing > Freewriting

The positive force is the surprise of discovery. Writers are born at the moment they write what they do not expect . . . They are hooked because the act of writing that, in the past, had revealed their ignorance, now reveals that they know more than they had thought they knew.

- Donald Murray.


Inventing looping

Inventing > Looping

Freewrite a draft.

Re-read the draft and attempt to identify the "center of gravity"--the place where your content is most original.  Identify effective metaphors, images, sentences.  Circle the language that you find to be of value.

Begin a second freewrite after rewriting the "center of gravity" at the top of the page.  As you draft again, repeat the language you find helpful from the first draft, using these passages as a creative point of departure.  

Repeat the "looping" process as necessary.


Inventing think visually

Manage revision and editing

Manage Revision and Editing

  • Don’t accept everything you hear. Ignore the cranks. Like bad drivers, there are too many cranks for you to police.

  • Be your own worst critic. No one will take your work as seriously as you do.

  • Don’t try to critique your work at the last minute.


Trying again

Trying Again

If and when you submit a second time, send a revised proposal and indicate that you took their advice, i.e.: “It was so rewarding to hear the panel appreciated this, and it was helpful to hear they were concerned about X, so we have …”
