How to Conquer Laziness and Start Writing Papers?

July 6th, 2016 | Posted by GradeMiners

The hardest thing for a writer is to make a start. Those who have ever tried to engage in literary work, know that it is true, but not like the pseudo paradox statement: “I’m not rich enough to buy cheap things.”

As a fundamental role, I would like to suggest such recommendation: “Divide the process into writing and editing”, paying attention to the fact that the creative writing process involves not two, but five stages:

  1. Preparatory work
  2. The idea or intention
  3. Drawing up the plan
  4. Actually writing
  5. Editing and perfection


  1. Do not put the pressure on yourself.

Give yourself the freedom to write when you feel a push, and do not write when your head is overwhelmed by thoughts. Push – it is the most notorious inspiration. It is necessary to wait, and while it is not coming, do not start anything. “Wait” –  means to engage in preparatory work: to write, sort materials, keep a diary, translate, rewrite your favorite pieces of works of other authors, and so on. I would like to note that the idea that comes to mind at the moment of inspiration, it is not that great top idea, it is the working idea ,sometimes banal idea, that allows you to concentrate and associate the dissimilar material in another way.

  1. Read on daily basis. For inspiration.

Classic literature or creative writings can be a mighty stimulus, if the own thought is weakened and is forced to seek the support of others words. But there is no benefit when you read all in a row, necessary to read only what will later be useful for future research. And to find out what is helpful and what is not – necessarily make statements,expositions or notes on the margins of read books. In the computer age this box of data needs special care.

  1. “idea” (when it occurs)

  1. “Making a Plan”
