Benefits to revising
Your writing will be more effective and alive and ultimately better understood .
There is no good writing, only good re-writing
Getting started.. ALLOW YOURSELF TIME Writing is a process that you do a little bit at a time. So allow yourself plenty of time!
Print out your paper
This helps you to catch your mistakes without relying solely on spell check. Spell check does not catch everything.
As you read your paper out loud look to see if your paper is organized. Check that you have transition statements in each paragraph this helps make sure that your paper flows from one logical point to another.
Does everything in your paper support your thesis? Have you gone off the topic? No matter how much you like a point or a sentence, if it is off the topic, you must cut it out of your paper.
Real revision requires that you open yourself up to the possibility that parts of your paper - and even your entire paper - might need to be re-thought, and re-written.
Check your grammar have you used the correct verb forms? Are you using the right words? Check your punctuation, do you see run on sentences or fragments? Check your spelling.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY...!!!
Use all sources available to you
There are plenty of sources available on the internet if you have any questions over grammar, citation, and so on. Your school may also provide a learning center that can help answer your questions and provide assistance.
