Writing a dissertation is not an easy job, and it shouldn’t be treated as one. Don’t let this scare you though, it’s not going to be that difficult, you just have to realize from the start that it will require some effort and some patience. This does not make it a difficult task, I think everyone can agree, but it doesn’t make it an easy one either. You just have to keep your mind focused until you finish, so that you can do this properly and well done.
First of all, choosing the topic. This is probably the most important step, since the whole paper will evolve around this main idea. If you get this one right, you are one stop closer to doing a great dissertation, but try to take some time at this step. Don’t just choose the first that pops up into your head that seems interesting, try to take some time and think of something new, something unique, something that maybe hasn’t been chosen before and hasn’t been presented before. This will make sure that you capture everyones attention from the start, since a new topic will make them think that they will learn something new, and for most people that is always a plus.
This is another crucial step and don’t even try to skip it. You have to make extensive research on the chosen topic, otherwise you will waste it. Make sure that you check on multiple sources, you can go online and see what you can find, and you can also go at a library and get some books on that topic, or you can do both. This will ensure that you have gathered the neccesary material before you start, and you will have what it takes to make a great paper.
This is another good step you can make. Try to make a guideline of the final paper, something that you can check every time you feel stuck or you feel like you don’t know what to do next. This will give you the upper edge, because, instead of waiting for your inspiration to come and hit you, you will make it come yourself, simply by looking at that paper and seeing what you should write next.
This is the final step, but it’s definitory. Try to use the proper language, make sure you have specific terms, ones that apply only to that particular area, and make sure that you use a formal language, you don’t get too personal.
