Tips to fasten thesis writing

It’s true that many students find thesis writing a cumbersome task. This is because it involves sheer amount of time. However, there are 10 steps that can help you to write your paper faster than ever.

  1. Set a Deadline for Research Completion: Although research is time-consuming, that can also stretch to indefinite limits, you should set a time limit to finish it within the assigned time frame. Once you set this deadline, you have to stick to it – no exceptions
  2. Set a Deadline for Thesis Completion: Just like the research portion, the writing too can continue indefinitely. So set your own deadline to ensure that you stop working on the paper when the deadline is met. This will allow you to proofread and edit the piece thoroughly.
  3. Set Chapter Completion and Review Dates: Allot a specific time for each chapter. This ensures that you stay on track to meet your thesis completion deadline. You might need to share this information with your supervisor. This will help him to have adequate time for reviewing each chapter and giving a proper feedback.
  4. Choose a Writing Environment: Select an area where you face minimal distraction. You should be comfortable in this area and should also stay focused on your writing.
  5. Avoid the Internet: You need to ensure that wherever you choose to work should not have internet access. This is because checking emails is the highest time waster. If you stop browsing your mails, you will be able to focus completely on the paper.
  6. Set Timed Work Blocks: Focus on a single idea for up to 30 minutes, and then take a break when the time limit has been reached. This helps you to stop and collect your thoughts. If you keep setting smaller blocks of time to write, your brain will stay engaged with the task at hand.
  7. Walk Away: Make sure to walk away from the computer once you have met your deadlines for daily writing. This gives space to your brain to understand how it can function at its highest levels.

Following these steps for writing will help you to reach bit closer to thesis completion each day.
