Your first draft will not be what you turn in to the department, so don’t panic if you think it is not a masterpiece. It’s much easier to revise, add to, edit, and work with a draft than a blank screen. Get something down on paper and use the advice of your adviser and peers to turn your thesis into that masterpiece.

Here are some tips that will make the process of proposal writing easy:

  • Use outlines: For every chapter, outline your task as a writer. Include what you want to tell to reader. Outlines will help your thesis have a clear structure and it will help you stay on point. You can make your outline quite specific or broad, but this is a critically important piece of advice
  • Keep a writing schedule and time sheet: Block out large chunks of time to turn off the Internet and actually write. Also, log how much time you’ve actually spent writing each day and what you accomplished—this will help you identify your best writing times of the day.
  • Work on the project every day: It’s difficult to go back to something after you’ve set it aside for a few days. Even if it’s just for 30 minutes a day re-reading something you wrote the day before, try to block out thesis time every day to write. This also helps you keep all the parts of the thesis connected—if you write the literature review in September and never go back to it, your findings aren’t going to be written with that framework in mind and the project won’t be very cohesive.
  • Think about your audience: Think of your thesis as a scientific document. Adopt a somewhat formal or technical tone, but also be sure to explain any key terms, jargon, etc. Look at the books and articles that you have found particularly effective in communicating the main idea and findings—how do they organize the write-up?

  • Explain key terms: Your thesis may use terms that have special meaning to sociologists. Be sure to define these terms the first time you use them. The depth of your definition should reflect the importance of the term to your overall paper. You can use brief examples to illustrate what you mean.
