A Guide On How To Write Academic Papers With Ease

Writing assignments are something that every student must deal with. Fortunately, while the assignments get harder, the paper writing process gets easier. This is especially true as you learn the best techniques for academic writing. The following steps will help you easily compose any of your assignments.

  1. Read Over the Paper Guidelines
  2. Before you frantically start thinking, “Who can write my paper for me ?”, know what the assignment requires. You can save yourself a lot of stress beforehand by reading through the assignment instructions and referring to the grading rubric, if you were provided one. Having a clear idea of what to expect will guide you on to the next steps.

  3. Set Yourself Personal Deadlines
  4. The easiest way to tackle any lengthy writing assignment is to break it up into parts. If you have a few days (or even a few weeks) to complete your paper, decide when you want to have each section completed (i.e., choosing a topic, research, creating the outline, writing the rough draft, and proofreading. Then, hold yourself accountable for meeting the deadlines you have set.

  5. Pose Your Topic as a Question
  6. The easiest way to keep yourself on track as you complete research for your assignment is to write your topic as a question. When you have a question to answer, your paper becomes more relevant. Each fact that you find should answer the question to some extent.

    For example, imagine that your writing topic is preventing teen pregnancy. A good question would be “What is the effectiveness of different methods of preventing teen pregnancy?” As you look for information, you can reference methods like sexual education, contraceptives, and condoms and discuss how effective each is.

  7. Organize Citations as You Research
  8. If you have ever written a paper that requires in-text citations, there is a good chance you have misplaced a fact (or where it came from) at least once. Then, you may spend an hour or more skimming your sources to appropriately cite the information. To prevent this, come up with a system for organize your citations beforehand. Either list information from each source on its own sheet or use a highlight system to keep things organized.

  9. Create Your Outline
  10. The outlining phase is important for organizing your ideas. To prevent your outline from becoming a disorganized mess, type it in a writing program on the computer. This will allow you to easily add facts where they are needed, without squeezing them in the margins. You should also try to be as detailed as possible, since more details means less work when you start composing the first draft.

  11. Compose the Draft of Your Paper and Reference Page

    If you have a thorough outline, this step will not take more than 30-45 minutes, even on the most difficult assignments. Remember to add your citations as you go. Once you have the entire paper composed, draft your works cited page as well.

With the above steps, you will find yourself an expert paper writer in no time. Use these and keep your mind open to learning more- the best writers never stop learning new tactics.

About Me

Writing is something that every student must face. From elementary school to college, students are given writing assignments. This is intended to teach you how to research and learn once you have left school. Still, the benefits of being adept in academic writing do not always outweigh the hassle in some student’s eyes.

Why I’m Interested in Writing

I set myself apart from many other college students because I actually enjoy writing. I am a college student, but I keep a writing blog in my spare time because writing is a hobby. I also like the potential to learn something new as I research topics for papers. Rather than keeping my hobby to myself, I have decided to create this blog as a means of educating high school and college students.

What You Can Find on My Writing Blog

As someone who is both talented at and enjoys writing, this blog serves two purposes for me. First, it lets me do something that I enjoy outside of my own school research assignments. Second, it lets me share all I have learned with my readers. Some of the contents that you will come across as you read my blog include:

  • Sample research papers and essay
  • Tips for becoming a better academic writer
  • Formatting tips
  • Research paper writing tips
  • And more...

I have enjoyed compiling this blog to provide writing help for students. Hopefully, it will help you realize and reach your full potential as an academic writer. Best of luck in your future writing endeavors!

Topic

Before you can begin to do research for your paper, you need to know what you are writing about. If you are fortunate enough to be able to choose your own topic, choose something that interests you. For topic ideas, ask your fellow students, brainstorm for 5-10 minutes, or browse writing help sites.

Thesis statement

If you already have a research question, your tentative thesis statement will be easy to write. Now that you have an idea of what your main points will be, assemble a thesis statement. Remember to clearly state your purpose and intentions for writing the paper, as well as introduce the main points that you will cover in the body paragraphs.

Proofread

Students who are experts when they write papers place emphasis on proofreading. Proofreading is an easy task. When skipped, however, you can lose easy points. Read through at least twice- focus on readability and organization the first time and spelling and grammar the second.
