On being written

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores the joy of research as a journey of discovery through writing, driven not by the need for outputs but through a genuine curiosity to inform decision-making and change. To publish because you practice, not because otherwise you may perish, is a privilege. To be motivated by curiosity, need, or even annoyance brings a freedom to explore, express, and, sometimes, educate through publication. Writing is described as an unfolding journey through an ever-more-coherent landscape, where mistakes and back-tracking are part of the travel.
