This is the portion of PapeReady that has been designated as a resource for improving writing skills. As you can see, the look of the site is different and to the left are a few links to help you out. More coming soon...
- "Paper Goals" outlines the paper-writing process step-by-step.
- "Paper Types" gives a brief overview of a few common types of papers.
- "Resources" provides a list of convenient links to other helpful sites.
Don't try to fit your writing style to a mold. Do what comes naturally to you while covering the points you need to cover. This will make your paper more comfortable to read.
Don't be afraid to revise and rebuild. This means that you can't become too attached to what you've already written, or else improvement will be hindered.
Don't use a thesaurus. Instead, utilize words you are already familiar with. Remember - the size of your vocabulary isn't as important as how you use it.
Do engage the reader by showing, rather than telling. Prove your point by backing it up with facts and details instead of only stating your point and expecting the reader to take your word for it. This goes for both creative and scientific writing.
Do say what you need to say in as few words as possible. Concise writing holds the reader's attention.
