Students spend a large portion of their scholastic lives writing and researching papers. Picking a topic, narrowing the subject, researching relevant material, synthesizing information and citing sources can be challenging and sometimes painful. If you find yourself with writer's block, visit these resources for step-by-step help.

I need all-around writing help.
If this statement is true for you, then start with sites that offer step-by-step instructions. Start with Internet Public Library's Research and Writing. Following this site's detailed instructions on everything from choosing a topic to citing sources will keep you and your paper on track. The Basic Guide to Essay Writing also illustrates the essential steps to writing a successful paper.
