There is a glut in the market of dissertation writing companies. Students are often seen struggling to decide for the one that is best for them. These kind of services are surely desired by students and come in very handy to them because students, particularly scholars are trapped in so many activities and schedules which makes it very challenging for them to take up the writing work of the dissertation. Getting the writing work outsourced is helpful and important but what is more important to decide is, that it is the right choice for you, from among so many options that are available.
By paying attention to two simple things, you can ensure that the dissertation company that you are choosing is the best option for you:
Experience and Background: This is the first and the most important thing that you must check when you are finalising a dissertation writing company. The kind of experience the company has in this field is very important. This is crucial because the availability is so much and you wouldn’t know that many of them who have a virtual presence do not have a sound physical system to rely upon. Hence, it is essential for you to ensure about the history and the experience of the company, completely.
Competence and Skill: Being profession is integral for a good writing company. They need to be someone who can stick to time commitments, quality expectations and other specifications that you give them, without you actually being after them, all the time. The way they handle their work for you, talks a lot about their level of professionalism and competence. In addition, their level of skill is also very important. You have to ensure that the company is able to meet your needs appropriately and are able to give you the productivity that you so desire. The level of expertise in any dissertation writing company would come from the pool of writers/editors and proof-readers that they have. Good and professional companies are very particular about hiring the right kind of people and making sure that they are the best in the industry, and are well versed and updated with the changing requirements of the academic arena. Sometimes, as clients, when you are looking out for companies to do writing work for you, you may get tempted to go for the one that is offering a cheaper quote without actually going in the background of its experience, competence and skill. That may not be a wise approach.
Most of the people who are doing their PhD, are intending to be in academics, where what they talk in the classroom will be more important than what they write. Ironically, still, to be able to qualify to be become an academician, you should have done your PhD.
Only when you start your PhD degree do you realise that writing, which is integral to research, is no way similar to passing an exam. Though, for all your previous academic endeavours, it has been the requisite for a successful journey.
You would find a great deal of advice online and offline, about how and what to write, but first thumb rule to adopt for life is, that one never really becomes an expert writer. You keep practicing and you keep improving. That is the journey of a writer.
If you are a parent, then I can tell you that writing has some similarities to parenting. Like, only after becoming a parent, do you realise what it means to be one, only after starting to write, can you know what it means to become a writer.
Still there are a few things about being a writer, which no one would ever tell you about. Here are they:
- The medium that you start using to write becomes your addictive medium and it is very difficult to switch over mediums. Like, if you are a pen and paper writer, you may find it very difficult to move to a computer to write and vice versa.
- Once the writer bug in you is awakened, and you are involved in it in body, mind and spirit then it shows everywhere. From body aches to arm twitched arms, your brain starts to stay unaligned with your body clock. You may get the best of ideas at the wackiest of hours.
- If you are a professional writer, you also got to be a professional digital trouble shooter. With so many software and bugs that are present in the virtual world, and to add to that being able to handle formatting, editing and other concerns on the machine, you got to be not just good at the creative part. Have your technical antennas also ticking.
- Writing is exhaustive, physically yes but mentally too, equally. So much of creative exploration of your mind tires it and you need to give time to both, to rejuvenate and come back in their productive best state.
Your writing is a reflection of your thinking. A bad write up shows clouded thoughts. When you make an attempt to write clearly, you automatically improvise your writing as well. Things like the layout, sequence of sentences and punctuation may seem like unimportant and insignificant but you may not realise that focussing on them can greatly improve upon your understanding of the material. By the fundamental approach and a universally followed goal, practising to write regularly, again and again is the way to write well. When you keep doing something again and again, you surely improve at it. But some things to surely watch out for, are:
Sequencing of sentences: reading a document should be as smooth as perhaps walking. Sentences should lead from one to another in a very smooth manner. A good English write up is the one which has short sentences and a lot of structure that connects across sentences. If you abruptly change your topic without actually taking the reader through a smooth transition, you often distract and confuse the reader. A change in topic should be from a new paragraph. Some signal words and phrases should be used to prepare the reader for the new topic or change in idea.
Don’t create sandwiches: sandwiches are common to create in academic writing and easier to find when you are explaining in the concepts. A sandwich is something here by you squeeze in another idea in between one idea and it is a clear cut indication of poor organisation skills in writing and writers must be very cautious to avoid the same. Mostly when arranging, you should be careful of first introducing those topics that are general in nature and then carefully graduate towards more specific sub topics that can only be understood after the basics are clearer. You must say all that you want to say about one topic before you decide to move on to another one. This approach is very helpful for the reader as well.
Create sharp sentences: create short and sharp sentences and include as few commas as possible. Usually writers fear that they would lose the attention of the reader if they write short sentences but that is not the case so and as a writer don’t let that anxiety develop into you when you create sentences.
Adopt these few techniques and be the writer you want to be. More on this in the next blog!!
Setting up of goals is more of a task that suits the corporate world. Sounds so not matching with the free spirited task for writing which we all say, works best without any restrictions and constraints. Still, experts in academic and non-academic writing suggest time and again that setting up goals is a means to enhance the productivity of writing and not stifle it down. When you set up goals for your writing assignments you are clearing up your thoughts to make sure that you do the tasks that are most important first and get accomplished to pave the path for the less important ones.
You are able to track your progress when you have goals set: When you have benchmarks set for yourself, end of the semester you are able to measure your productivity against your benchmarks. You automatically start feeling more productive when you know you have accomplished the goals you set for yourself in the semester.
You can be fair to yourself and not feel overburdened: slow and steady is the best approach. When you are in the habit if setting up regular goals for yourself, you know how much is fair for yourself and hence you are able to achieve realistically without actually overburdening yourself in any way.
You are able to maintain a steady pace: when you have writing goals, you know approximately how much you need to work in each day to be able to accomplish what is required. You become more dedicated and find time each day for your activities. It further helps the content to stay fresh in your mind because you don’t leave it unattended for many days, rather you touch it every day, even if it is for a while only.
You know the stop signal: a seasoned goal setter knows his capabilities and limitations. When you achieve your goals ahead of time, you know you can afford to stop for a while, take a break as a reward. You know the feeling to enjoy the free time without any feeling of remorse is only possible when you accomplish the goals you have set for yourself.
Some of you may disagree with me here that setting goals is necessary for productivity. Well, you may be right in your own way but what I can surely say is that, setting goals gives you the time to accommodate other important things in your life as well, which you may not be able to find time if you did not organise your work pattern and commitments.
