Planning and Organizing Your Paper

By February 8, 2013

Follow me on:

Sometimes we can have a lot of great ideas for a specific paper assignment, but we just can't get started. If you have trouble writing the first sentence, you might need to start with a "mind dump" and work from there. When you mind dump, you pour all your thoughts onto paper and worry about sorting and organizing them later.

One good method for organizing a paper is the text box method. In this method, you create several text boxes filled with random thoughts and ideas. Once you've dumped all your ideas into boxes, you simply drag them around the page to organize them into a well-crafted paper outline.
