What you should know
about Ten Steps
What if you could find a way to get your writing done without the usual hassles and pressures? Get it done on time. Get it done easily. Leaving you time for what you want to do.
There are no guarantees in life. When it comes to writing, however, Ten Steps might just make a difference. It’s a writing journey, each step building on the previous one; a journey that shows you
how to get started, gives you tools to bring out your own creativity,
how to structure and edit what you've written, and how to finish. In particular, take a look at using Mind Maps. They are incredibly useful. (Click here to access the Sample Chapter on writing proposals that contains examples of Mind Maps and how to use them.)
The layout’s unique and helpful. Detail on the right page, key points on the left. Check the Thesis Section. You’ll see what we mean.
We couldn't complete this without a quick comment on documenting sources. There's a useful comparison between APA and MLA formats.
Better solution. Get yourself a good software program like PERLLA and stop wasting your time trying to figure out whether you’re using the right caps, italics, etc., as required by APA & MLA.
