My writing philosophy can be summed up in four words: clear,
informative, concise, and
I will help your writing exemplify these four characteristics and when it does it will be noticed!
I will help you create a paper that completely realizes these four characteristics.
Your research ideas and conclusions will be in the high-quality context they deserve and will be
noticed by reviewers, readers, and committee members!
High-quality writing is always clear.
Many times academic writing is so muddled that the reader continually hesitates, or even re-reads
earlier sentences or phrases, thereby making it much more difficult for the reader to focus
on the point being made. In order for your research conclusions to be
influential, the reader must be able to understand them without undue effort.
Your writing must be informative.
This includes helping the reader understand the context of the research and how your new conclusions
are an important and novel part of that context. Your writing must highlight the research conclusions
you have worked so hard to develop.
Your writing must be concise. Papers that are overly bogged down
with details are a major problem in academic writing. The reader is
so overwhelmed by information that the main points get lost. In concise papers, the writing is pared down to
the most important information and extraneous details are removed.
Academic writing must be polished
in order to be published. If a reviewer notices errors in spelling, grammar, or punctuation, the
reviewer begins to doubt the quality of the research. Similarly, poor logic or gaps in the literature
review can doom your paper before a reviewer even gets to your research conclusions.
