πŸ”– Read How I Build My Common Place Book (Greg McVerry)

McVerry generously summarizes his workflow:


  • Document impetus of thought (often after the fact)
  • Collect initial bookmarks
  • Ask in networks, bookmark your queries
  • Collect research, and block quotes or use social annotations
  • Begin to formulate thoughts in random blog posts
  • Start to draft the long form thought
  • Publish an article on my Domain."

Next time I take it into my head that words won’t come out of me in written form, I’m going to re-read this 2018 blog post in which I calculated that I wrote 98,000 words in the first 5 semesters of my doctoral program.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah β€˜TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
