Writing an EssayWith FreeMind

If you are going to sit down and write a solid research paper, then you will need to adhere to the process. Not all research papers are created equally, but you can generally get by if you follow the established formula. Research papers are as much about preparation as they are about the writing itself.

When you put in the time to prepare, you will be ahead of the game and you'll be able to effectively write. The process starts with brainstorming and pre-writing, a process that will center you on the proper ideas.

Choosing a topic

With some research papers, the topic will be given to you. With others, the topic is something that is left to your own discretion. If you have to choose a topic, then you need to focus on choosing something that is novel, unique, and substantial to the field that you are studying.

The idea is to look at an issue from an angle that no one has covered before. Come up with an original claim and try to uncover information on that. With some issues, it might be impossible to be completely novel, so you should try hard to take a different perspective if possible.

Researching the topic

The key is to make sure that your sources are credible and comprehensive. While you can get by using secondary sources, you will be much better off if you use a combination of primary and secondary sources. Try to get sources from the actual time period that you are writing about, since this will give you a much better picture of what was happening at that time. If your sources are right, then your paper will be much better overall. Let this be your focus and you will find success in the paper writing.

Writing the drafts

Great writing does not exist, but great re-writing does. Your paper will get better on the second, third, and fourth try, so keep this in mind.
