What advice would you now give to someone writing his/her first scientific paper?

Think about your topic and decide if it is a good topic to write about. Organized sites and articles you

plan to use in your writing. If you think your are done with your research, you can be assured that you are

NOT done. You will need to do additional research after the initial research exercise. Spend as much time

writing and rewriting your research paper, it will pay off in the end.

         What areas do you feel you strengthened in the past 10 weeks?

How to find factual articles. I think I know how to write a more active versus passive sentence.

         What areas do you feel still need improvement in regards to writing?

I need to keep working on it all, however, I think I am better at some things than others.

         Any final thoughts or statements to make before we wrap up?

 Do not give up, the more you write the better you get.

         Last, this was fun bet you did not think it would be! Thanks for all of your hard work!

GG's Writing Process

It was really challenging last week doing midterms exams and attempting while sick. I was unsure of the topic I chose security of mendical records and was not finding the kind of articles I needed, really feeling stressed out  about this writing process.

Feeling better now, decided to change my topic, but to what...........................

Felt a stressed out before the reading and seminars this week about paraphrasing. Afterwards, I felt much more comfortable with paraphrasing and the discussion really helped. I think the instructors are doing a wonderful breaking it this way.

Purdue OWL: Creating a Thesis Statement

Purdue OWL: Creating a Thesis Statement
I chose effects of personal health records on consumers for my topic. I had two other topics, but I am pretty sure I will do this one. I hope I do not regret. I have drafted my thesis statement, however I know I will tweak it at some point. My feelings about writing is mixed because I always think of my best ideas or things I need to write about when I am not working on my research paper. When sit down to actually start my typing I draw a blank and have forgotten all my ideas I had earlier. So, to help minimize my forgetfulness I keep scrap paper around to capture what I am thinking. Ideas seem to come to me at the weirdess times.
