Writing Tips #10

Break up a large writing  project into small piecesand work on the pieces


Writing and analysis for any given paper is often an iterative process. Writing the results section of a paper is often the best way to discover the analyses and figures that still need to be done. Sometimes things would be much more manageable if they were small and focused. Not much deep thinking has to be endured and we just focus on finding the right word to make up the sentences. Try to  make them into bits and pieces so you can tackle them separately  and still maintain the cohesion of the original idea. Sections of a paper like an introduction, review of literature, methodology , analysis and discussion can be dealt with in this manner. Those sections will be discussed in detail later on in this writing tips series.
