STEP TWO - MAKE A TIMELINE

 
Manage your time by setting specific goals for completing the various parts of your project.  Some parts will take longer than others.  For example, the bulk of your time will be spent doing research and writing your paper, but other steps, though less time consuming, are important too.  Allow enough time to choose your topic and to plan the organization of your paper.  Remember to also allow enough time for revising and proofreading your work.
