THE ABCs OF WRITING
As a college student, one has many essays to write ranging from dissertations and thesis statements to simple class presentations. The first thing to consider when writing all or any of this is the research needed and the time allocated. Most essays have a hand in date by which all papers are supposed to be submitted. This means that the student should be able to plan their time wisely so that they have time to do extensive research and write the paper well. It is however very important to first identify a specific research area or topic before diving in. In most cases, the essay may outline what one needs to research on. But there are times when one is expected to come up with a research project themselves. Most students for instance are supposed to come up with their thesis subjects and papers at the end of every academic year. It is important to use reliable sources as research. You Tube and Wikipedia for instance are not reliable sources for any data. Scholarly articles and any peer reviewed work are definitely reliable research sources. After doing proper research, the writing should begin. One should write in simple English. The sentences should be brief, clear and to the point. Proper sentence structure and punctuation is something easy to overlook but equally important. Typos and grammatical errors are to be avoided. This means that the writer should proof read their work. Several times actually. They should also enlist someone else in the role of pseudo-editor. This person is the fresh set of eyes and insight into the project. They are supposed to read and offer useful critiques that can make the work a better masterpiece. Formatting and proper citations cannot be overemphasized. This means that the student should format the work according to the lecturer’s specifications. It is important to run the essay through a plagiarism checker before submitting it. This normally alerts the writer to non-unique parts that need re-wording or the presence of missing citations. It is important to keep the word count. This means that one should reach the minimum threshold but not exceed it by much. All these tips adhered too, is a fail-safe plan to a stellar paper.
