(Newswire.net — December 12, 2017) — Procrastination is something most of us had to deal at one time or another in our lives. While some of us thrive off the pressure, for others, the stress associated with close deadlines is too much to bear. The good news is that procrastination, like most behavioral habits, can be changed using the right techniques. Here are some thesis writing tips for those struggling with procrastination.

Read and Collect

Before you even start writing your essay, you’ll need to read and revise your source text first. But you have to do so with a purpose and clear plan in mind. First, you should go over an analysis/summary of the text in question and gather some valuable quotes from it. These will be the basis and inspiration for your thesis. However, you have to make sure that you never steal verbatim from the source text, just gather information and inspiration from it.

While you’re reading your source text, either transcript important parts to another document or highlight them on the original text. Make sure quotation marks are used properly and that you cite sources correctly before you decide to add your own commentary. This will allow you to save a considerate amount of time when comes the time to write your final text.

Start Forming your Thesis

Now that all your quotes are in order, you can start forming your thesis. Your thesis is the main point your essay will intend to prove. The thesis itself makes an assertion, your quotes and points should support it.

Please note that your original thesis draft should never be longer than 1 to 2 sentences long. You simply don’t have the information yet to write a whole paragraph. You’ll have to wait until the whole essay is done before you form a more complete thesis.

Formulate Thesis Sentences

Once your thesis statement is formulated, come with a least three supporting points to back it up. Each point you choose should have a particular quote in the original text to back it up.

Your points should then be formulated into full sentences. For instance, if your thesis is that Carl’s dad was angry at him and that your point to support it was that “Dad grounded Carl”, then you’ll have to reword this sentence into “one indicator that Carl’s dad had an issue with him is that he was grounded in chapter 4”. Once all your sentences are formulated, paste them to your word processor and rearrange them in a cohesive fashion.

You can then rearrange the phrases in whichever way you please and add points along the way and add new points that supports your thesis. By then, you should have completely formulated your original thesis. You can dress whichever parts you feel are empty with your own words and supporting points from other sources if you want. If you still need help formulating your thesis, there are plenty of companies offering thesis servicing in the UK that can help you out.

As you can see, procrastination can be overcome if you know the proper techniques. If you follow the tips in this article, you should be able to come up with a stellar thesis in no time.
