Step One: Outline

Writing an outline may seem like a waste of time but it is an easy way to organize your ideas quickly. It will help you write your thesis, solidify your topic, and help your paper flow. The outline should state your thesis and three main points with an introduction and conclusion.

Step Two: Set Up

All five paragraph papers should consist of the same set up. The first paragraph is your introduction which will include background information on your topic with a thesis statement. The second through fourth paragraphs will each contain supporting topics that justifies your thesis statement. Your final paragraph is your conclusion. It will restate your thesis and leave your audience with something to think about.

Step Three: Research

Finding sources for your paper is easier when you know exactly what you are looking for. You have to do some research in order to determine what your three supporting facts will be so you can expand on these ideas by finding sources to support your reasons. You can also get a source that tells you general information about your topic that you can use in the introduction paragraph. Make sure that you cite all of your sources. Make it a habit to write down the resource information first before taking notes so that you don’t forget.

Step Four: Fill in your outline

Now it’s time to start writing. You can start by filling in more details from your outline. Go from topic to topic and write about each subject. Breaking your paper down by section can make it seem less intimidating. Just concentrate on proving each supporting detail one paragraph at a time. Use transitions to move from one topic to the next. The transitions will help your paper flow and keep you on task.

So with these four simple steps, you can easily write a paper in a day.
