  3. Analysing the text and developing the thesis To begin with, you will have to Read and analyze the text. Start by thinking what most interests you, and think the main idea that the author wanted you to understand once you finished reading. After this, choose a topic which you will focus on. This one needs to be something people might reasonably disagree about. Once you’ve done this, focus your topic. A good one needs to be narrow enough that you can completely address it within the limit. The next step is to develop a thesis. This is to transform your topic into an argument. Finally, gather more evidence to support your thesis. Now that you have chosen a topic and preliminary thesis, you can focus your research.
  4. Outlining your essay Firstly, organize your ideas in an outline. It is always a good idea to write an outline to organize your ideas. Use your outline to help organize and guide your research. If you write an outline early in the research process, you can use it to help focus on the specific areas you need to explore in more detail. Finally, flesh out your outline as you go. An outline can also provide "container" in which to put information.
  5. Drafting your paper Start with an introducing paragraph, including the texts and authors you are working with, as well as your thesis. You will need to give a summarize about the text. Give examples about the topic you are working with. Explore deeply and support your thesis and ideas in the following paragraphs, with evidence, backing, examples,etc. Conclude by moving beyond your thesis.
  6. Making use of multiple drafts Focus on the argument during your first draft. Don't worry about style, spelling, or length. Do another draft focusing on the organization. Let someone else read your paper, so that you can have another opinion.
  7. Editing your paper Print your paper to edit it. Check if you have unnecessary words and then eliminate them. Also delete repetitive sentences. Remove all references to yourself. How you came to your conclusions does not matter. Read your paper out loud so that you think while you read of grammatical mistakes like uses of commas for example. Read one sentence at a time, from ending to beginning. And finally, run spell check.
  8. Overcoming writer’s block Be sure that you give yourself plenty of time. in order to avoid running out of time, start early and schedule plenty of time to write and you will be calm to think as well. Work in 2 to 6 hour sessions spread over multiple days. It is hard to stay productive past 6 hours. Start at least a week before your paper is due.
