From the article:
"Instead of lecturing academics on the 'right way to write,' I offer them a menu of choices, a smorgasbord of possibilities: feasts rather than binges, nourishing diets rather than punishing purges. ... I suggest strategies for explicitly linking productivity with craftsmanship, people, and pleasure: for example, by reading books and attending workshops or courses that will make them feel more confident in their writing style; by forming collaborative relationships premised on emotional support rather than on disciplinary sanctions; and by seeking out writing venues filled with light and air" (Sword, 2016, p. 320-321).
I am putting Sword's book, "Air & Light & Time & Space: How Successful Academics Write" on my reading list!

writing has been such a buddy to me that is why i dont seem to go with my day with out it. thank you for this post, it has made me understand a few things.
Thank you for inspirational words! My children suffer very much at school because they do not get pleasure from writing. The only help for them is https://www.assignmentexpert.com/do-my-assignment . That all is because of teachers who create psychological pressure, which do not let children enjoy writing. What do you suggest doing in this situation?
