Scholarly writing

The level and volume of reading and writing in my PhD program ramps up with each class.  Rather than look upon the work, along with the time commitment, as a burden, I see it as part of my journey to become proficient and prodigious in scholarly writing. 

Malcolm Gladwell has postulated that it takes about 10,000 hours of repetitions to become an expert at anything - I see the doctoral journey in this light.
