Writing Research Papers
Back in high school, people hated writing research papers. The best way to write a good research paper is with a thought-out thesis.
Take some time to choose a really thought-provoking concept. This can be anything that you find interesting.
Then, take the thought and break it down into smaller supporting ideas.
Brainstorm where you can find factual information on those smaller ideas. This will give you a great model of what to research, and will make writing a research paper easy.
Remember that it's your ideas that make the paper interesting, not just the straight statistics and data you can present.
