Writer's WebSome Warning Signs of a Rushed Paper

This checklist notes some characteristics of writing done in one draft and at the last minute. Watch for these symptoms of hurried writing; your professor will certainly notice them!

The pages should be numbered, and your name should be typed on your paper. You may want to start with a formal title page from The MLA Handbook, The APA Manual, (or another handbook); check with your professor about a system of documentation appropriate for the class. The Boatwright library has copies of The MLA Handbook, Publication Manual of the APA, and Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers on permanent reserve.
