|Professor Amanda's How-To's of Easy Research Papering.

Two and a half pages of my Biology paper are now written pleasingly, much to my satisfaction. It only took two hours to throw in bits of my previously paraphrased source quotes and make them sound good as hell (only much nicer).
I'm writing it on the infrasonic communication of African elephants. Soooooo interesting. I'm truly in my element!

This is going to be a great term paper. I feel it. I'm on Step 5, so the hardest parts are already done! :D
I rather like this new-found method of making an essay piece by piece:
1) Do the research.
2) Make the outline.
3) Now for the paraphrasing of yummy scientific tidbits from said research onto a separate document.
4) Pat yourself on the back. The hardest parts are now over!
5) Print this document out and label where each tidbit should be mentioned in the paper, based on the proposed categorical content of each paragraph in your outline.
6) Last, copy and paste these into the paper itself as needed, and transition from each fact to the next with thoughts of your own to make a smooth, interesting, convincing, painless paper!
Do you like this idea? Is your head reeling from the possibilities? Tell me, people!
