The Nuts and Bolts

When you are writing your paper it is important that you pick a title that is apt and one which reflects upon your essay. You should be clear about the purpose of your paper in not just the title, but in the thesis statement and the abstract (if there is one). You want to divide your paper properly into different chapters or sections. It is also important that you check the following:

  1. Go through two drafts of the paper at least. You should finish your first draft and then be able to wait 24 hours before you return to it and edit. Make sure that the first person is eliminated from your final piece. If you find that some of your paragraphs are longer than one full page then you need to cut them down. Chances are you have too many ideas contained in that single space so break it down and restructure it in an effort to follow your meaning. You might be able to break down your one long paragraph into two shorter paragraphs.
  2. If you find during the draft phase that some of your paragraphs are fewer than four lines, chances are you have not thoroughly developed your ideas and are writing basic notes in lieu of a thorough analysis. Short paragraphs are used as a transitional paragraph and not a content paragraph. This is a rhetorical device that leads your reader from one argument to an opposing argument, and then back to another argument. You can use it, but make sure you are using it properly.
  3. Use quotes sparingly. While it is imperative that you have supporting evidence, you need to be careful with the number of quotes you use and the length that you use. One quote per argumentative paragraph should suffice. In some cases you may need two quotes, but be cautious because this often makes it impossible for you to get deep into the text. You want to show the reader how the quotes are interpreted to support your argument. That being said, remember that every quote you use should be followed by your interpretation of what the author said and how. You need to demonstrate how this quote supports your claim. While you are evaluating the quote, pay particular attention to tools such as:
