When you know what your topic is and have outlined the ideas that you think you want to discuss in your paper, it’s time to start writing! Many students find that the hardest part of the drafting process is simply getting started. If you can, find a comfortable place to write where you can work without interruption or distractions. A library, coffee shop, your couch – anywhere where you can focus. And don’t forget that you don’t always have to work in a linear fashion on your paper. You might find it easier to write the body of your paper before writing the introduction. The important thing is to get started!
