Read the question very carefully.
Answer the question.
Write a short introduction – explain what you will be discussing.
Let it flow – on the initial draft, get down all you want to say in an ongoing stream of writing; don’t focus on refining it.
Format it – text looks and reads better when there is double line spacing, pictures, graphs and good-sized margins.
Keep it simple – use plain language, e.g., ‘the project needed a supervisor’ and not ‘the project required a supervisor’.
Shun cop-speak – use ‘now’ instead of ‘at this point in time’, ‘car’ not ‘vehicle’.
Keep track of research – insert references as you go along.
Pare back – delete words and sentences that are superfluous.
Re-read – preferably print out a copy on which you can mark any changes and add comments before going back to the digital copy to make amendments.
