Everyone uses a different writing process. One process is to print out your rough draft or outline and edit with a pen or pencil. It can be helpful to see it all on paper and arrange the pages as you see fit.
The writing process will vary based on the type of project you are working on, but most will involve putting together your own paraphrased notes, any direct quotes from your sources, and your own original thoughts.
Find a writing process that works for you. Do you need to write an outline? How will you map out your argument? Or support it? Revise carefully. How will your revisions affect your whole paper?
Incorporate your sources ethically. Have you captured not just the words but also the context of your source material? Have you used the correct in-text citation method? See the last tab in this guide for help with citations.
Start writing early so that when you finish, you can come back to it later!
It's important to take good notes as you are researching your topic. You'll save time if you take notes the first time you read through an article, rather than going back to read it a second time after you decide to use it as a source.
