This book was written because I got fed up saying the same thing to every student that came through my door when I was running a cross-discipline writing centre. It covers every major avoidable error that students make in their writing, such as referencing, structure, knowing what the question means, and much more. Topics include: How should I prepare to write my essay? How much time should I leave? What am I being asked to do? Shouldn’t I just read everything I can and then start? What are the parts of the question? What concepts will you need to define to write the essay? What is the difference between the relevant views? What is the difference between a claim and an argument? What counts as evidence? What does the question mean? What does critically analyse mean? What’s the difference between objective and subjective? Why does it matter? What resources will I need? Why is it important to define my terms, and how do I do it? How do I structure my essay? How long should paragraphs be? What is a topic sentence? What makes a good introduction? A good introduction should… The most common mistakes made by students are… How do I write my conclusion? What does a completed essay structure look like? How do I sound academic? Using fancy words is getting me in trouble… How do I avoid using or showing my opinion? What language can’t I use? How should I read? I don’t understand the text… Why shouldn’t I read every word? The dialectic (or, how to argue) What kinds of reading are there? How and why should I take notes? How do I reference? Why can’t I use just anything I find on the internet? How do I know what's okay? Why do I keep losing marks for referencing? How do I avoid plagiarism? How should I prepare before the exam? How should I manage my time? What do I do when my mind goes blank? How do I prepare for lots of different topics, or questions I can’t anticipate? How do I answer multiple choice questions? How should I approach essay questions? Why do I lose marks on multiple choice questions?What to do if you have absolutely no idea what’s going on Points to remember in writing

A guide to writing a full-length transformational nonfiction book, from an editor with two decades' experience working with authors from all walks of life. "I know I have a book in me." "I've always wanted to be an author." "People always ask me when I'm going to write my book." "I have a story to tell, but I never seem to make time to write." These are just a sampling of the messages Kelly Notaras hears every day from would-be authors around the globe. Life coaches with new methodologies for living on purpose . . . energy workers who've discovered new ways to prevent disease and teach self-healing . . . everyday heroes and heroines who have made it through difficult circumstances and want to inspire others to do the same. In today's tumultuous world, we need these voices in the marketplace. Moreover, publishing a book has never been so simple, accessible, or affordable as it is today. So why are so many thought leaders, healers, and change-agents stuck at the starting line? This book will light the way--offering a simple, step-by-step path that takes authors from concept to finished book. In it, publishing veteran Kelly Notaras demystifies the publishing process and gives writers the tools, insider information, and inspiration to start strong, keep going, and get across the finish line as quickly as possible.
