Writing an excellent piece that is not just grammatically correct but is also a great piece to read is not everyone’s forte, yet it is difficult to find even a single person in this world who has not written something or the other in their entire life. If nothing else, most people, and this is especially true of the population in the UK where education, at least up to the school level is compulsory; have written academic essays.
Writing academic essays is no joke, so try not to scoff here. This is because not everyone is a born writer who has to only sit down with a piece of paper and a pencil or pen and then begin to just ‘let the words and the ink flow across the page.’ Poetic as that may sound, the sad, bitter truth is only this; writing is just as much of a hard task and requires just as much effort as, maybe gaining or losing weight to fit your ideal body size does! And we all know how much effort those pounds take from you! So, if you are really interested in improving your style of writing, and this is especially true of academic writing, here are some great tips that you could try following:
- Get Through With Research
First of all, sera yourself a timeline. The best part about most academic projects that you are assigned to write is that the topic is already given to you in the form of a question or an academic essay that you need to write. Now all you need to do is conduct a sufficient amount of research on the topic so that, once you have done that, all you will need to do is write.
- Just Start Writing
You have probably heard a lot of teachers, maybe even your parents scream this out at you, but you know what? Writing may not be all that much of an inspirational task as it is made out to be, yet the best fun that you can have when you are writing is when you really begin to get a hang of what the question is asking from you and how you can answer it in the best possible way. Yet before you reach that optimum level where your thoughts, words and speed are all so well synced in that the academic writing just begins to feel like an effortless task, you need to just write. Maybe the first couple of lines will be utter rubbish. Never mind. Come back and correct it later. For now, never mind what you are writing just write, because even if, at the outset, it only feels like you are paraphrasing your research material, all that reading and putting it down in your own words will begin to make sense and then you will go on like the proverbial house on fire.
- Edit, Edit, Edit
When you have hit that optimum speed and are writing like an inspired person, a lot of errors tend to creep in. No matter who or what you are, a native UK student, a foreigner studying in the UK, a PhD or even the world’s best academic writer, you will make lots of spelling, grammar, even syntax errors at this stage. After writing, give the work a short break, then come back to it and read it before you can actually think about submitting your work.
Try these simple tricks and see how well your writing style improves. And if you are still unsure and would like just that tad extra help, contact us at British Assignment Help and have some of our experts help you out with writing and editing your academic essays.
