Resources for Proposal Writing
At WU: Tips for writing a successful Carson grant proposal
These two sources are more focused on graduate students (and beyond), but they have some great thoughts on what work a proposal narrative should do: SSRC's Art of Writing Grant Proposals & UCB's IIS Dissertation Proposal Workshop.
Bibliographies & the Joys of Scholarly Writing
WU's Politics Department requires students to use Chicago (Author Date) style.
Students often ask me about writing style, and whether they should write in the first person. Long story short: I write in first person, but you don't have to. (This has to do with epistemologies and that I don't think it's possible to be a self-sovereign subject, much less "objective.") For an overview, check out UNC's "Should I Use I?"
Time Management & Organization
Used to writing up your "To Do" lists? Try using an app to keep track of things on your computer and smartphone, especially if you like to scribble To Do lists on small sheets of paper and then tuck them away. Wunderlist is free on a number of platforms, and you can create a tab for each class, but then sort by due dates.
Trouble focusing on writing? If you use a Mac, I recommend trying this free app, SelfControl.
