Printable PDF writing paper templates in multiple different line sizes.

Even if the proposal is still in its infancy, peers can be quite supportive. Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” So start getting words down on paper — any words are okay. Planning is good, but don’t tie yourself up in knots if you don’t reach all of your planning goals. I have a coworker who has both a treadmill and a sitting desk.

Taking a day to do something with family or friends, a religious day, or a day in the woods is especially helpful to recharging your batteries. Introduction should match the Discussion; Methods should match the Results. If this writing project is worth it in the first place, it is worthy of a top priority slot in your life.
Summary: MLA Style specifies guidelines for formatting manuscripts and citing research in writing.
