Tips on Writing College Papers

The month of March is very near, which means that the end of the school year is also near. I am sure that many college students are swamped by their many requirements given to them by their teachers. One of these requirements that demand lot of time and efforts from students is writing papers.

Writing a college paper is not easy. I remember some nights, during my college years, that I stare blankly at the computer screen. I was trying very hard to think of something to write but nothing come out of my head. It took hours before I finally started to write the first sentence.

I know that is frustrating because I experienced such frustrations in the past. So, to reduce such frustrations, I created some guidelines that I followed to finish my required papers on time.

Here are those guidelines in writing:

1. Write ahead of time – I had the habit of procrastinating whenever the deadline for my papers is weeks away. I just play games or read novels without thinking of the required papers. Then I suddenly wake up that the deadline is near and I haven't done anything yet.

This habit is not productive because it will cause your mind to panic. Our mind gets blank once we panic. Thus, avoid procrastination and start working on your paper the moment the teacher gave it to you.

2. Research, research, research – A well-written paper is a well-researched paper. It is hard to write pages and pages of college paper if there is no input from other literature. Thus, it is very important that you do a research when you are writing your paper.

3. Seek examples – One of the thing that is hard to write is a thesis statement. So, what I did to find some examples of thesis statements to help me in creating my own thesis statement. Finding examples is good because you will learn a lot of writing styles that you can apply to your paper.

4. Find help – Writing your required paper is not the only requirements that you may have. Thus, there might be no time for you to finish it. The solution for this is to find help in wirting your paper. You can ask the help of your classmate, your friend or even your older brother. You can also go online seek some help from online writing services like the

These are just few of the tips that I follow when writing papers (or even blog posts). I know that there are other tips out there. You may even have your own tips. If so, please share it to us by leaving a comment to this post.
