Trial and Error in Paper Writing

| | Comments (0)

  • You start with one idea, you test it, and you hit on something better.
  • You might end up somewhere unexpected. If so, that's good -- it means you learned something.

This happens to me a lot.  I will start writing about one thing, but my finished paper will have gone in a completely different idea.  It seems like trial and error.  If I start with one topic, I usually find I do not have enough evidence to support the claim, so I change the topic.  By this point, I have done enough research to know which direction to go.  Eventually I will find a topic that I can write about and support.
