Paper writing can be of many types, such as essay writing or research paper writing. Both have different formats and all but are similar in writing tone as they’re both either informative or persuasive.
I’m guessing you don’t have any writing experience because that’s why you’re here reading this article. Nothing to worry about, you’ll know how to write an essay and a research paper by the end of this article.
Many big papers writers were beginners but they worked hard and achieved success. It’s all about how much time you’re willing to give to it. The more time you give writing, the faster you’ll master paper writing.
You can later do freelance work once you think you’ve mastered paper writing. There is a lot of work online just sitting collecting dust.
The only way you can do writing properly is if you know yourself deeply in and out. It’s all about how you convey your message to your audience through words.
First, let’s talk about essay writing. Essay writing is very simple if you can follow the guidelines while writing and the ability to do effective research. Essay writing is about 4-5 paragraphs. You’re given a topic by your professor to write about with some instructions given on the assignment.
Be very careful when reading the instructions as they are your teacher’s expectations which you should follow no matter what.
After you’re done reading the instructions, you can start the research about the topic and gather at least 6 main ideas for each paragraph. After that, you should form support sentences for your main ideas as they will look incomplete without them.
Every paragraph should have its argument and a support sentence to it. Also, make sure to write an interesting introduction about your topic. An introduction is something the reader will see and read first, so make sure to make it interesting or the reader won’t even bother reading the whole thing.
The next thing you should do is make a draft of the essay by using all the information you have gathered. The draft will make it easier for you to write the whole thing as basically, the essay will be in front of you in the form of a skeleton. Then all you have to do is start writing and complete the essay.
When writing the body, try to use shorter sentences as it’s easier for the reader to read compared to reading a jumbled-up paragraph. And also, try to be specific when talking about something, don’t be too wordy as it looks very poor.
Last but not least, end your essay with a conclusion. Review your points given in the paragraph above and give your own opinion on them regarding your thesis statement.
Essay writing and research paper are very similar, the only difference is that the research paper is quite lengthy compared to a 5 paragraph essay. A research paper is about 28 pages and they give you a week to complete it.
The process of writing this is also the same, do your research on the topic, then gather all the information, then draft it and start writing.
