After the lengthy break (for example, the next day), go back and edit more. (This is why it is important to start working on your essay far in advance!) Also, don’t be afraid to just type without thinking too much about whether it’s any good. Many people find it best to just sit down and write a lot without much reflection.Just make sure you have enough time to go back and edit.
It is also helpful for long papers to put in additional headings, perhaps even sub-headings, to break up the body section (such as “First Argument,” “Second Argument,” and so on).
Familiarize yourself with the material before you begin writing.
You won’t be able to write much if you don’t have anything to put on the page.
Think about your paper topic as soon as you get the paper assignment prompt from your instructor. A great way is to discuss the issue with your instructor or teaching assistant.
The body section should consist of at least several paragraphs where you will provide support for your thesis statement in the form of reasons, evidence, arguments, justification, and so on.
That is, you have something you want to communicate or argue for (your thesis) and here is your chance to explain it in detail, support it, and defend it.
(Some instructors, like me, even think that summary sections are unnecessary for short papers.) It’s a good idea to put these sections titles in as headings in your paper to organize and break things up for yourself and your reader.
If your instructor doesn’t want headings in your paper, just take them out before you print it to turn it in.
Many instructors encourage students to turn in early drafts to them for comments.
Just be sure to check and see if your instructor allows you to do so.
