Weekly Writing Tips from the Writing Center

submitted by sonquisi@augsburg.edu

1) Before a student starts writing their paper/essay, write an outline for that paper/outline. It is always better to have an idea about what to write and change it then to go into any paper without an idea. This will help eliminate writer’s block as well and being able to finish the entire paper faster as well.

2) Before submitting the final draft of the paper, take five minutes and read over the paper one more time. So many students finish their papers and want to turn it in just to get that assignment over with, however, if they read it over one more time, they will notice minor mistakes that they can fix and help the paper.
