This is a supportive space for us to hold ourselves and each other accountable for self-paced work and projects.
Total drop-in vibes where you can work on anything on your task list...not just writing!
We currently have a regular group of junior faculty, graduate students, and industry professionals who attend.
Concentrated Work Time: We use a Pomodoro method and work in 45-minute bursts (off camera and off mic), and then check in for 15 minutes. We generally fit three bursts and check-ins per 3-hour session. Again, this is totally drop-in, so come for part or all of the three hours!
Martinis and Manuscripts: Starting at 3pm PT/6pm ET, we have an informal gathering called Martinis and Manuscripts. During this time we can continue working with our cameras on, while "shooting the shit." You are welcome to bring a cocktail or mocktail to celebrate the end of the work week!
I (DrThembot) find it useful to use a pomodoro timer to remind me to stay on task. I use one called BeFocused Pro, which has a free version available on the App Store for desktop.
Here are some of my favorite LoFi channels I like to listen to while I work:
Halloween LoFi | Tokyo LoFi | LoFi HipHop
