And don't forget:
Adding more content
to the paper to make sure you reach a specific goal
, like a word count
or page count
. Most frequently done after believing you had finished the paper, but then found out it wasn't long enough.
It is important to remember to try and pad your report either before, or while, writing a report.
, and using other format technique
s can make a paper look weird
if it is not adjusted
to fit the new settings
. This can be a pain, if, like me, you get things to look good as you type, but have to mess it all up
at the end.
If you add more content
to your paper
, make sure it is relevant
. I've messed up at least
two papers by adding content after I thought I was finished
. In one, the extra content practically introduced a new and unsupported thesis, in the other, I introduced support
s for my thesis
that just seemed to detract
from the argument
Many teachers prefer a good essay to one that fits their length requirement.
