Creative Approach to Constructing a Great Dissertation

  • Organize your time.
  • The best piece of advice if you need to write a good work and don’t spend much time on it is organizing. Create a schedule of writing by spending, for example, three hours every day on researching the topic you’ve chosen. And use these three hours totally only for your paper, without any distractions and with all the commitment you have.

  • Create mini-deadlines.
  • Aside from spending a couple of hours every day on your work, try to create mini-deadlines so you finish the paper part by part. For example, give yourself a week on a thesis statement and introduction to your dissertation, then a month on the major research, outline, notes, etc. At the end, spend a couple of days on a proofread and you’re done right until the main deadline. No panic, no rush, just a good paper and confidence in its success.

  • Take notes all the time.
  • We all know that some major ideas come to our head when we do anything else but not writing. You can stand in a queue in a grocery store or wait for a friend on a station, and suddenly there’s something you need to include into your paper. Don’t hope you will remember all this when you get home, better make a note. There are many applications for smartphones that allow you to make notes in no time, using only your voice.

  • Read as much as possible on the topic.
  • It’s also better if you have a paper full of facts than with only two statements and never ending explanations included only to fill the space. Instead of your common reading, take papers of scholars, read the results of researches similar to yours, analysis, etc. This will help you be updated on your topic and have a ton of information to include even in such a big paper.

  • Give your paper to other people.
  • It’s better to give it to different people, both who understand what you are writing about and who don’t. The first category of people will give you a review on the scientific background of your work and the cohesion between the topic, the research, and the analysis. The second category of people will tell you whether the text is readable at all. Whatever good the facts are, if the text can be understood only by you, this won’t lead to the best result.

Writing Help and Samples: Useful or Not?

Any help is useful until you do at least something yourself. It’s much better to use some samples to get good ideas for your own work, use tutors help if you fail to understand anything on the topic, etc. So whenever you have a chance to get some help, do it without hesitating. This will help you write the work faster and make it more interesting. The more you sit and suffer not understanding something or lacking ideas on writing the introduction or conclusion, the worse the result may turn out to be.

To Sum Up

By using a non-standard approach to writing your academic paper, you will make it not just another research, but a good experience for you. The work may also become more interesting, and you may get a better grade for it.
