Someone write my paper!

“I hate writing! I wish I could pay someone to write my paper!” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard these words said from my college friends or acquaintances who are not confident writers. Of course, it’s not ethical to get someone else to write your paper or other written material. Not only is it fraudulent, but you also rob yourself of the pride of knowing you produced original work to the best of your ability. That said, I’ll be more than happy to help you with some steps that can help you produce writing of which you can be proud.

The most important part of writing is knowing your audience and your end goal. For example, are you writing an essay on a specific topic? Are you writing a short story? A cover letter? The writing you produce will depend on the message you are trying to convey to your specific audience.

(My audience for this post, for example, is college students who need help writing their papers.)

The goal and audience notwithstanding, writing starts with a basic universal framework consisting of three parts: an Introduction, Body, and Conclusion. Using this basic framework, anyone can write a document for any purpose. The key step is to start writing without initial care for perfection. Write down your point of view in the raw then come back afterward to edit for grammar, typos, structure, etc.

Using the Universal Framework: Introduction, Body, and Conclusion

So how do we use this universal framework? Since most folks who uttered the pained phrase “someone write my paper!” are college students, I’ll apply this framework using a concrete example for a hypothetical college paper. What does it take to write a successful college paper or essay? Let’s review the framework steps one by one.

The Topic

Hypothetical Scenario: Political Science 101: Your professor asks you to write an essay on a controversial public policy. Specifically, you are to write a paper defending or disclaiming the New Green Deal (NGD) proposed by Progressive Democrats in the US House and Senate. By lotto selection, you are to write a paper defending the passage of the NGD.

You have clear instructions about the topic: New Green Deal (NGD) and your audience is your professor. We also know that your personal views notwithstanding, you have to defend the NGD. The scene is set. Let’s build out your paper using the universal formula by starting with an introduction and hypothesis (opinion) about the topic.

The Introduction

Start your essay by introducing the topic, the New Green Deal(NGD). Give a brief history of the legislation, and a summary of why you believe that the NGD must become a federal law. A sample introduction for our hypothetical NGD paper follows:

This paper will show how the Green New Deal (GND) is groundbreaking public policy legislation and why it should be federal law. All claims regarding the NGD are substantiated via relevant, peer-reviewed scientific data and social case studies. The work will also demonstrate how the opposition views are grounded in misinformation and pseudo-science.

This definitive introduction sets the tone for what the audience can expect in the following paragraphs, namely the Body and Conclusion.

As an NGD advocate, you will have to find relevant and valid data that shows concrete evidence of how the NGD could potentially help the US economy (for example, by providing well-paying jobs, increasing productivity, and enhancing American Environmental prestige globally).

If you want to get more granular, you can also discuss the positive global impacts of the New Green Deal given our current dual crises of a Pandemic and Global Warming.

The Body or Main Point

The body is where you get to shine. In this section of your paper, write down all questions that you can think anyone would want to know regarding Green New Deal. I mean everything you can think of because you know your professor will be asking them too.

To get your mind going, ask and answer questions like the following:

What is the Green New Deal, and when did it start? 

  • The first step of the body of your essay is to give an overview of what the Green New Deal is and isn’t. State when it began, what its tenets are, and how it will be implemented if passed by the legislature.

What are the pros and cons of the NGD? Do the pros outweigh the cons? If so, how? 

  • Flesh out your contentions on how the NGD can help the US economy with well-paying jobs, increasing productivity, and enhancing American prestige globally. You can also discuss the positive global impacts of the New Green Deal on the environment.

What are dissidents of the NGD saying? What data refutes their position?

  • This stage of the main body introduces opposing viewpoints to the NGD legislation. It’s your job to refute them one by one. It bears repeating that you will need to cite credible sources to back up any claim from your point of view for this exercise.

Use these questions as a guide to flesh out your position regarding the NGD legislation. An important caveat that bears repeating is to cite impeccable sources to validate and strengthen your paper.


Finally, we get to the end of our paper! We are ready to conclude our essay after introducing the New Green Deal and giving evidence-based data to show how the pros outweigh the cons.

The conclusion is where you can place your final exclamation on your hypothesis. You are pro-NGD because:

  • It will bring the US into the 21st Century while increasing nation-wide infrastructure jobs
  • Significantly reduce the emission of greenhouse gases responsible for the current global warming calamity
  • Ultimately reduce the cost of energy

These are just a few ideas to jog your imagination. Pick whatever reason for your pro-NGD stance and make sure to back it up with credible data.

Your conclusion should leave your audience impressed if not convinced by why the New Green Deal is the signature piece of legislation needed to rebuild and modernize the United States.

Putting it all together

Whew! Now that you got all the pieces of the universal writing framework, get to writing that paper! Don’t think about writing the perfect words. Gather your data and make your case using your own words. Believe it or not, doing this is the biggest victory when writing a paper, essay, or any other document.

Use this post as a framework for anything you need to write. Make your own case by swapping out the questions and providing relevant and useful information for your audience.

Professional Editing Services

Welcome to Editing by Dawn the home of professional editing services. So what exactly comes with editing services? Who would need professional editing services? What does an editor do anyway? Read on to find out more.

What does an editor do?

An editor is one of the final professionals that review documents such as book manuscripts, resumes, dissertations, or advertisement copy before final publication.

The editor will check and correct any errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, consistency, capitalization, and several other writing technicalities regarding accents, signs, numbers, and fonts. Essentially, editors serve to refine written material by carefully reviewing for inaccuracies and typographical flaws.

An editor may also work as a proofreader, but the professions are not necessarily interchangeable. Read this article to find out more about proofreading.

Why professional editing services?

There are many instances where editing services are essential. At Editing by Dawn, I cater to a specific subset of individuals who need my services including students, businesses, and individuals. Other editors may work exclusively with authors needing help with book manuscripts or scientists with medical articles.

Be it a novel, a medical paper, a grant proposal, a resume, or any other type of document, if it is to be published for public consumption, a final review by an editor is imperative. Taking the risk to rush to publication without working with an editor can lead to a lot of headaches and embarrassment as a result of sloppy copy.

When to seek out professional editing services

Websites like Grammarly can help writers begin the editing process. However, these sites cannot replace the expertise of a professional editor.

Let’s take a look at some instances where professional editing services become an invaluable tool for ultimate success.


Novelists and authors craft the stories that we love to read on our Kindle or in good old-fashioned paper books. However, before we get to enjoy those stories, they first have to go under the careful eye of a professional editor. Professional editing services for authors help with various aspects of fiction editing including word choice, plot development and, overall structure.

Working as a team, the editor and author work together to make sure that the material is consistent, flows effortlessly, and most importantly, is free of any typos or grammatical errors. The end result is a book or novel that immediately draws you into the story without being distracted by plot inconsistencies, typos, or grammatical errors.

Business Website

Every day more and more business websites are popping up on the internet and they are some of the top consumers of web content providers like copywriters and editors. The question is why?

It’s one thing to set up a business website, with products and contact information. However, websites need much more than this to attract and retain customers or clients. Businesses can enhance the marketing value of their websites by providing informative articles for visitors that can help them with the problem that brought them to the website in the first place. For example, a contractor’s website may offer blog posts about the materials used for various types of construction projects.

Many business owners may be great at sales but find writing marketing content for their website challenging. This is the point where they can seek out professional editing services by working with an editor. Businesses may write their own copy and use the editor to spruce up or improve their material before uploading it to their website.

College Student

Let’s face it, the American Educational System has failed our students and this is evident in the number of college students who are routinely placed in remedial courses whether they need it or not. Upon registration for college, students are assessed to see whether they can pursue college-level education or need further remedial ELA and Math education.

Even if they are able to pass these tests, some students struggle with collegiate writing standards. Additionally, many college students are ESL (English as a Second Language) who may experience difficulty crafting grammatically correct essays and other written classroom assignments.

Both cohorts of students greatly benefit from working with a professional editor or proofreader to help bring their writing skills to the next level and ensuring passing grades.

Everyday People

Yes, even everyday people can benefit from professional editing services. From a job-seeker needing to brush up their resume, or a non-profit Executive Director who needs help writing grant proposals, to an older person going back to college and needs help crafting an engaging personal statement.

Let’s take a closer look at an example of an everyday person who can work with an editor. We have Sandra a job-seeker who needs help with writing a winning cover letter. She has the requisite skills and experience but has difficulty translating this fact into her cover letter and/or resume.

By working with an editor Sandra can effectively tailor her skills to closely match the job description thereby boosting her chances of getting that first interview.

Job seekers represent a small fraction of consumers who rely on the services of editors. Editing is truly an essential universal service for businesses, students, and individuals.

How to find professional editing services

After completing the final edits for your document, it’s time for an editor to review and refine your work. Where do you start? Fortunately, there is an editor for every writer, whether a novelist, a student, a blogger, or a job-seeker, and it’s relatively easy to find professional editing services by doing a quick Google search.

You can also search freelancer sites like Upwork and Fivver to find an editor who offers the services you need. At Editing by Dawn, I provide both proofreading and editing services.
