The Kind Of Binging That Is Good For Your Writing

Academics come to Scholar’s Voice™ and the Navigate program seeking a solution to escape a binge-and-bust writing cycle, redefine their academic mission statement, and clear out their publication pipeline. Writing every day or in long panicked stretches is not sustainable and makes consistent publications impossible.


But today, I want to share how binging can help your writing practice! Scholar’s Voice™ offers an exclusive bonus on the Navigate program each year. In 2023, we are introducing the Holiday Binge Bonus! Pre-enroll for Navigate and get access to all of the program content in advance. Use free time over the holiday break to learn how to map out a publication pipeline, prioritize your mission statement, and build a sustainable relationship-based writing practice. Are you ready to change how you write? Listen to learn how to take advantage of this one-time-only Navigate bonus!

The Holiday Bonus Binge

I am excited to formally announce the Holiday Navigate Bonus! All program participants enrolled before December 20, 2023, will get early access to the full suite of Navigate content. Typically, Navigate members receive weekly content releases to make the coaching and teachings more manageable for busy academics. However, what better time to get ahead than during downtime over the holiday break?

The Benefit of Binging Navigate Content

Many academics have extra time over the holidays. Most use their free schedule to binge-write. But binge-writing inevitably leads to feeling overwhelmed, overworked, and burned out. Instead, use your free time over the holidays to learn how to establish a sustainable, relationship-based writing practice! Then, once Navigate officially starts in January, you will be more familiar with the program and ready to begin implementing the coaching into your writing and publication process.

How Do You Get the Holiday Bonus?

Begin by applying to Navigate and filling out the initial application form. You will be asked to complete a benchmark assessment and schedule a pre-enrollment call if approved. On the call, we will discuss your goals and challenges as an academic and ultimately determine if Navigate is the right program for you! Following the call, you can officially enroll and process the tuition payment. The application and interview process must be completed by December 20, 2023, to qualify for the Holiday Binge Bonus. 


“You feel like you have more time over the holiday break than you would during the year or the academic semester. Instead of using the time to binge on your wiring which will lead to a crash and is unsustainable, you could be using the time to binge on the content that will help you smooth over that crazy binge and bust cycle that you’re in right now. ”



“I hope the Holiday Bonus has given you a little fire under your butt! Maybe Navigate is something you want to do, maybe it sounds exciting to you. Maybe you don’t like to participate in programs where the content is dripped and you would rather do it yourself and then work with your community and your cohort to implement it. If so, then it’s a great time for you to apply for Navigate!”
