If you have a large paper due, start it a few weeks ahead of time. For instance, if you have a ten page paper assignment, write one page a day. This way, you will not spend too much time cramming your writing into one solid session. Also, this helps you to manage time easier!
Make sure to take breaks during writing. Stress does not make your writing better. It is best to take at least an hour break from editing and writing to refocus before tackling another writing session.
If you come across a spelling error while proofreading your paper, make sure to check a dictionary instead of using spell-check. That way, you’ll find the correct definition of the word you’re trying to use. Also, remember that most smart phones come with a dictionary application!
The Studio is now open six days a week for the rest of the semester–and we are happy to help you with your writing goals.
