Once every few weeks, Dr. Ross invites lab members over to her home for writing day. Lab members are welcome to drop by and take this opportunity to be away from the office to focus on writing. Lab members look forward to the next writing day: we often help each other when one of us is stuck on the wording of a particular sentence, or how to frame a particular concept in a paper. We also appreciate the accountability of working in a small group.
And of course, the quick access to coffee is appreciated!
