Question:

The white blank page is taunting me! How do I get started?

Answer:

Just go! Don't worry about formatting or if it's any "good". Start putting thoughts on paper - editing will come later. If you like a more structured approach, try creating an outline. It can be as detailed or abstract as you need. The idea behind both of these is to get your brain synthesizing and organizing your thoughts.

What can I do if my keyword searches are not bring up anything helpful?

Answer:

One way is to look into the controlled vocabulary of the database you are using. It's always possible that the database has indexed articles in a particular way. We might want to search for "reference desk", but the preferred term could be "research services" - for example.

Question:

What are some strategies for editing my paper?

Answer:

There are lots of different approaches, depending on your goals! I always recommend taking a break to give your brain a chance to reset - it's easy for us to read what we meant to be there instead of what is actually on the page. It can also help to read it out loud to yourself, read it backwards and edit in stages.
