How To Write A Lot - A Practical Guide to Productive Academic Writing (2nd Edition)
A humorous, brutally honest and straightforward short read to change your life by changing your writing habits. Paul Silvia deconstructs our internal excuses for not writing while convincing you to write in structured sessions during normal working hours instead of binge-writing on your nights and weekends.
He provides practical strategies to motivate students, professors, researchers, and other academics to become better and more prolific writers.
The Productivity Planner
Plan on getting the right work done every day. This 6-month planner is incredibly well-suited to tackling a large and ambiguous project (i.e. proposal or thesis writing). Each day you lay out the MIT (most important task), secondary tasks and the estimated time to complete each one. At the end of the day, you reflect on your productivity that day and any unforeseen distractions. The planner also includes weekly planning and weekly review pages with motivational quotes and expert guidance. The early pages include best practices for timed Pomodoro focus sessions, prioritizing MITs and filtering out things that make you feel productive but aren't bringing you closer to success.
Moleskine Classic Hardcover Notebook
The world-recognized classic writer's companion that has stood the test of time. Choose from a red or black hardcover 5"x8" notebook with 240 lined blank pages. Includes a patented Moleskine gel ink pen with a flat cover clip for writing on the go. The ideal size for jotting notes, ideas, outlines or inspirations when away from your word processor.
Muji Japanese Smooth Refillable Gel Ink Pens
An enjoyable writing experience starts with enjoyable pens. Japanese-crafted Muji pens are world-renowned for their smooth, precise and reliable ink deposition. You should think of it as idea deposition. Use with The Productivity Planner or Moleskine for planning, organizing and executing your writing process. Includes one blue and one black 0.5mm gel ink pen.
Four Sigmatic Stimulating Mushroom Coffee Packets

Try them for yourself to test out their claims. Contains one each of the Lion's Mane (for creativity), Cordyceps (for steady energy) and Adaptogen (for calm focus) blends.
Rosewood and Stainless Steel Professional Waiter Bottle Opener
Wine is the secret weapon of many of the greatest writers. Open your motivational bottle like a professional. Already have one? Keep this one in arm's reach at your favorite writing station. Sturdier than double-armed corkscrews and more elegant than high-tech push-pull openers, this pocket-sized opener creates a moment of zen from the simple act of removing the cork. Also equipped with a beer bottle opener on the back of the stainless steel lever.
