anonymous asked:

Do you have any advice about writing research papers? I have a research paper to write for one of my classes I'm not a strong writer and i feel ashamed to reach out to my professor. I don't know how to start and all that means is that i've procrastinated and now only have a few weeks to do it and I'm panicking. I have to write it on any topic on antebellum america so i dont even have a concrete question to answer or anything :/ feel free to ignore this if you want, i'm just desperate for advice

ALSO you have no obligation to help me i just really admire your writing and thought you might have some tips. i know your life is stressful so if you cant answer my ask thats totally cool! <3

Hi! The kind of research I’ve done in a serious educational context is quite different to the kind you’re working on because obviously there’s a different approach to researching literature vs. history, but I’ll help as much as I can!

  1. Let yourself have an opinion. One of the most saddening effects of academia, in my opinion, particularly considering that it’s meant to help people to develop individual thought, is that it actually makes it much more difficult to have a genuine opinion. The more you get bogged down with theory and with dominating voices in class debates, the harder it can be to have authentic reactions, but try to really think about what you think. It’s much easier to research and argue something that you genuinely believe in, and taking risks can really pay off. I wrote my dissertation on Morrissey’s novella List of the Lost, and literally the only positive review I could find of it was by Linder Sterling, aka his best friend. Once I went to the pub with a couple of lecturers and a group of classmates, and my dissertation came up in discussion and one of my lecturers said “you’ve set yourself a challenge there!” and I really had, but I ended up getting a First for my dissertation and my overall degree, and my dissertation feedback ended ‘Also, the student should be lauded for what is no mean feat, i.e. the rescuing of Morrissey’s novella from the critical graveyard it seemed to be consigned to’ - arguing for my genuine opinion really worked out in my favour!
  2. Watch films/YouTube videos related to your topic. If you have no idea of where to start, watching films/videos that have something to do with the subject you’re trying to research will give you some context which you can put to use when it comes to choosing a particular area that interests you, as well as giving you some idea of what to search for when you start looking for sources.
  3. Find a way to make the topic interest you. If it’s not interesting to you in and of itself, think about what does interest you, and apply that to your approach to the topic. For instance, I once had to write an essay on the relationship between gender, love and economics in two Renaissance plays. I didn’t particularly like the plays I had to work with, but I’m very interested in feminism, queer theory and Marxism, so I researched essays on the plays and the period which applied those theories, and that made the research process a lot more enjoyable for me, because even though I wasn’t particularly keen on the source material, I really enjoyed learning about the social context surrounding them, and that actually made me enjoy them more. I did much better on that essay than I expected, I think largely because I managed to make myself enjoy it!
  4. Make sure your sources are reliable. Unless it’s been published by a respectable journal, publisher or media outlet, it won’t count for much in an academic context. If your references aren’t from a reputable source, it’s basically as good as quoting something your mum said over dinner one time. JSTOR is an excellent resource if your school gives you access to it, and Google Scholar is accessible to anyone! Also, although Wikipedia is never an acceptable source to use in academic essays, what you can do is go to the references section of any Wikipedia article and have a look through the sources there! I’d also advise you to read through the bibliography of any source you use and see if any of the essays listed there sound like they’d be of any use to you. You can also be really cheeky and make it look like you’ve read more sources than you have by using something that an academic quoted in an essay you did read to make it look like you also read the source it originally came from (but only if it’s actually useful and applicable, obviously!)!
  5. Don’t be afraid to disagree with your sources. Using sources to support your arguments strengthens your position, but introducing sources in order to disagree with them shows originality, which is just as, if not more, important. When it gets to the higher end of academia (i.e. BA dissertations, MAs and PhDs), the entire point of conducting research is to say something that hasn’t been said before, and if you can start doing that in your research projects now, that’ll look very good. My dissertation opened with a quote from a critic who hated List of the Lost and then a statement that the essay sought to respond to it by reading the novella through the lens of the queer Gothic - that demonstrates knowledge of and confidence in my subject area, and my supervisor loved it, so don’t be afraid to argue with the people you quote.

Also, don’t be ashamed to reach out to your professor!! That’s what they’re there for, and as someone who wants to become a professor, I love being asked about subjects that interest me - I promise they won’t think badly of you!

I also managed to find a masterpost on managing research projects - enjoy!

I hope this helps, and if I can be of any more use, please let me know!

Good luck!!

If there’s one God you don’t wan’t to get steamed up, it’s Hellion.

Hellion is the God Of Deception And Control. He was created by an Elder God named Esera to represent dark energy, while Seirye was to represent light. He’s the master of manipulation, deception, trickery and lies.

Personality: Extremely smug and arrogant. Has an air of mystery and sensuality surrounding him. The other Gods often describe him as devious but so intriguing. He likes to have a sense of control in everything he does and over everyone he knows. He mostly does this by reading their minds to reveal their darkest secrets. But under the coldness, he loves fiercely and will do anything to keep the ones closest to him safe.

Powers: Like most gods, Hellion can create portals to other worlds and teleport there in a heartbeat. He can also enter a person’s mind to read and control it, to change people’s memories and manipulate them to forget specific things. He has a number of different dark powers, but no one really knows what they are. He’s done a good job not revealing too much about himself, not even to Seirye.

Some Gods think mortals would be better off without them intruding on their lives. Hellion however, among many others think that the world should belong only to Gods. He believes mortals wouldn’t be capable of living without their guidance and control.

Look guys, my first anon hate!

@ anon I thank you for taking the time to express your dislike towards me. It’s admirable that you can be so committed to something.

Please go fuck yourself and allow me to express myself in peace. To my knowledge, I have never done anything to deserve to have this kind of behavior directed towards me. You’re very welcome to correct me if I’m mistaken, of course. In the meantime, please fuck the fuck off and come back when you can a) behave and b) write like a decent human being.

anonymous asked:

hey! what are some mistakes you find people make commonly in their art and how do you go about fixing it? I'm in a bit of a rut with my art and i cant figure out why my stuff just doesnt look right

there’s always two mistakes that i often see artists make (myself included). they are:

1) being fooled by the artist lens

almost every artist looks at their art through a lens filled with their artistic noobery, imperfections, and failures. 

art that is awesome is often deemed bad by its creator because all they can see is their fuck ups. it’s kinda unavoidable, but you gotta remember that your lens is there when you’re makin’ things. even if what you’ve done isn’t perfect, you’re one step closer to getting better. so keep going and don’t give up.

2) comparing your art to the art of others

whenever you make a thing it’s very easy to go online and find the art of someone else, compare, and get discouraged. but the thing is- we’re all on this artistic journey, and some people are a little further down the road, ya know? that person you’ve just deemed some kind of art demi-god is actually a huge nerd, just like you, who has poured 10 000 hours into honing their skills and getting better. you’ll get there too if you keep going.

reaching out to other artists (in a respectful way; please don’t be a creepy stalker weirdo) will often result in you learning things about your art you never noticed on your own.

keep going forward, don’t get discouraged, learn all you can, and be passionate about everything you do. don’t you dare half-ass anything- you use your whole ass every time you create.

that… that last bit sounded better in my head, but you get the point.
