Writing a paper is like taking a journey: There is a beginning, middle, and end. Without a road map, you may not get to your final destination... A WELL-WRITTEN FINAL DRAFT.
Where do you want to go?
Specific words, rather than general & vague (right word in the right spot)

IMPORTANT TRAIT
SENTENCE FLUENCY
Easy to read aloud
Varied sentences (beginnings, lengths, types, etc.)
Varied sentence structure
VOICE
Reader-writer connection
Sense of audience
Point of View
I believe I have some idea of how the refugee
feels, or the immigrant. Once, I was thus, or nearly so. ...And all the while I carried around inside me an elsewhere, a place of which I could not speak because no one would know what I was talking about. I was a displaced person, of a kind, in the jargon of the day. And displaced persons are displaced not just in space but in time; they have been cut off from their own pasts. ... If you cannot revisit your own origins--reach out and touch them from time to time--you are forever in some crucial sense un-tethered.
