Finishing Touches for My Research Essay

So, this is the promised finale for my post on research essay writing. There’s terrible pressure to make it as best as the first blog-entry I’ve shared. In fact, I’m feeling too sentimental; I’m hardly blinking through these tears (sniff, sniff)…

Oh well, I got to bring it on. So, here’s how to furnish the Research essays’ final part.

I myself am no expert in writing conclusive parts for my research pieces. My tutor has even remarked about the lack of clarity.

Step #1: Show a friend, classmate, or tutor your drafted last part.
Feedback is an important ingredient for every attempt to improve your research pieces. Hence, avoid ditching it, even if the truth hurts. Listen attentively and commit to actually making an improvement for the final part.

At times, I feel I am in no mood to write spontaneously. At this rate, I’d be preparing an outline.

Step #2 Create a fitting content for the Research essays’ final part.

For instance, if the introduction is about the objective of the research and the body presents the collated research evidence – the last part will have to discuss on the findings of the research.

We’ve tackled about improvement and content; how about the real ‘finishing touches’ of the piece?

Step #3 Allocate sufficient time to proofread and revise the final portion.

Okay, I am no immune to fatigue; in most cases, our patience and energy on the written piece may have been used up to work on the introduction and body. What’s left for the last part is a meagre portion. But hey, remind yourself that if you slack at the last part, then it will be your piece’s ruin.Furthermore, you’ve done quite a lot to ensure the quality of your piece; why leave the last part to rot?

Unfortunately, making the Research essays’ final part perfect is not attained overnight. It has to be consistently practised.

Step #4 Repeat all-three steps regularly, ah no, every single time you’re tasked to write the research piece.

Do it and stop grumbling. Do it and forget about making any ‘valid’ excuses. Just do it and bask in your success – that great mark, that positive critique from tutor and peers.

These four are my personal touches for research-works; make them yours, too!


Improving My Skill In Writing Essays

In the duration of a whole semester of writing research essays, I must say my writing skill really got better. Measuring our own skill in writing essays may sound like a nut job among others; perhaps, it is only for the tutors to do that, right?

No, I don’t buy it. To get an accurate picture of our skill’s improvement it is essential that we keep stock of our tutor’s comments and our own observations, too. In fact, if we find that these two benchmarks are parallel, then we can be more certain about our improvement, even our lack thereof.

So, hop on and consider checking, not just how to improve writing skill, but also how to assess the improvement:

i.The Flow. To see how I’m doing with my writing, I tend to review my “writing flow.” This flow is actually just the flow by which thoughts and words come. In my observations, I noticed that a single sheet gets easily filled after doing research, and forming some of my own theories or assumptions.

Regardless of varying speed, what remains constant is the fact that with good research and own inputs, that ideal writing flow can be achieved.

ii. The Relevance. The skill in writing essays should naturally include establishing relevance. For a dubious student like me, evaluating my written work as relevant is not easy. The only way I could be certain is by comparing my work with the given essay metrics.

However, because I’m adamant about learning how to judge its relevance through my own efforts, I had resorted to reading it aloud. By reading aloud, I could tell if something is amiss, or if logic doesn’t follow.

Most of all, I have considered it important to plough through its relevance from a chosen perspective only. For instance, while my finished essay is relevant to me as a student, it may not come as much relevant for an expert.

iii. The Errors. With constant practise, I have observed that my grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors have grown less. Errors are a big deal because in a tutor’s perspective, it may costs serious points.

Counting on these benchmarks, I confidently claim that my skill in writing essays is a whole lot better, and that I have remarkably improved.
