These steps assume you have done your research, and that you have chosen a thesis statement.

Here is what I do – a method I’ve come up with through more than a decade of higher education. You may do things differently, if you do, I hope you’ll leave a comment and let me know. I’d love to take suggestions on how to make my writing process better. Without further ado:



Rough Copy – sit down and get the words on paper

1st revision – go through notes and make sure I address appropriate issues, and add appropriate footnotes.

2nd revision – layout/format insert appendices, format bibliography

3rd revision – analyze argumentation + Revise footnotes

4th revision – literary style – make sure wording is precisely what I intend.
