Writing Tips

I found these old tweets when trying a tweet search engine. A writing-tips note from “Academic Writing” class last term :smile:. Hope it can inspire you!

Instruction: Read from the bottom to the top :mrgreen:

#10 spend time with yourself, just yourself, each you are in the middle of writing, don’t care with others (eg: soc.media) #academicwriting Fri May 20 13:15:11 +0000 2011

#9 be careful with data..you may know how much data has been fabricated in nowadays, so you have to very objective #academicwriting Fri May 20 13:07:59 +0000 2011

#8 if the references you have too many, probably you need to group it based on similarity of topic before summarizing #academicwriting Fri May 20 13:05:10 +0000 2011

#7 researchers must be able to take time for (bagian ini saya missed bgt tp kayanya msh berhub.sm nulis) writing on sheet #academicwriting Fri May 20 13:01:18 +0000 2011

#6 regarding prev. tweet, what happens when you turn on you computer? do you focus on your work? how about FB, Twitter, etc #academicwriting Fri May 20 12:58:43 +0000 2011

#5 don’t rely on computer, writing on the paper will give different effect than typing on wordprocessor #academicwriting Fri May 20 12:54:58 +0000 2011

#4 memorizing source also an important thing, if possible remember about author, title, published time, etc even the pages! #academicwriting Fri May 20 12:51:52 +0000 2011

#3 when you’re reading a paper, you should only adsorbing, not thinking, juat read, then once again.. go to summary note! #academicwriting Fri May 20 12:48:48 +0000 2011

#2 each reference you read, summarize it only in one paragraph..how about data in graphic or table? separate it #academicwriting Fri May 20 12:46:28 +0000 2011

#1 summary is the central point of your research, don’t write too much on your thesis, just simplify vocabulary #academicwriting Fri May 20 12:43:20 +0000 2011

many important things I got from #academicwriting course today, some next tweets are one way in practicing what I learned.. yonde kudasai Fri May 20 12:40:26 +0000 2011

  1. yang poin #5 dan #7 setuju banget ga..

    tapi kalo aku ga suka nulis di lembaran karna terbatas kalo mau ngerangkai satu sama lain, jadi sampe bela-belain beli whiteboard gede atau kadang make kertas kalender, haha 😀

    • whiteboards work for me and I have three 😀
      tulisan yang dipajang terbukti memberi sugesti juga buat saya


Wait! Don't forget to leave a reply here.. :D
