Research Writer Interview With Anna
Writing Process To Gain Knowledge
How long have you been working with Custom Papers?
I have been writing for CustomPapers.com for more than four years.
What motivated you to start writing model academic papers for other people?
I started writing in order to keep up and possibly improve my writing skills because after my college graduation I was going to continue graduate studies. At the time, I had to take a break between schools and I was afraid I would lose the writing proficiency if I stopped practicing it. So, I decided to write example custom essays and term papers for college students. It's been quite good; not only has it helped me stay motivated, but it has also paid for my hard work and time.
If writing is about keeping up your composition skills, does it mean that you write about literature only?
I can write on a wide variety of topics since writing is a process of expressing the knowledge one obtains. It does not necessarily mean that I, as a writer, know by heart everything that I put in the composition. Some parts of essays are simply references to other people's work. Looking at writing from that perspective, I always challenge myself and I'm not afraid to write on topics that I also have to learn new things about. The usual academic areas that I regularly cover include literature, economics, psychology, sociology, biology, film, business, marketing, some areas of law, accounting, history, ... and the list goes on.
It sounds impossible for one person to have expertise in so many areas. Don't you think?
It is true that no person has an ultimate knowledge in every possible field, but it does not indicate that one cannot gain understanding of different areas of life and existing theories, which, after all, are interconnected with one another and add up to structure the world we know. Written assignments are usually meant to be based on such understanding. I personally always strive to make as much sense out of the world as I can; the constant search and pursuit of reason is therefore very fulfilling for me. When I know that something is beyond my capacity, I simply refuse to contract those assignments. I don't want to be responsible for other peoples' failures.
Isn't it a failure in itself when students hire you to write for them?
I don't perceive it that way. Individuals who hire me to write essays for them have very different reasons to do so. In most cases, those are very legitimate reasons and most often indicate time restrains. I have no rights to question my clients' motivations, as they are adults and know best what is right for them. Furthermore, the fact that some clients are returning every now and then means that they don't hire me to write all their model essays or term papers; still, when they come back, it reassures me they are satisfied with my custom work.
Do you actually get feedback on your essays?
You sound surprised, but I most certainly do. The satisfaction statistics are very favorable too. I can easily estimate that over 95 percent of the model projects I have completed were very satisfactory to the clients; and more than 70 percent were written on "A-level." I could strive for straight "A-levels" on every single paper, but some students are being realistic about their diligence and writing skills, so for them an excellent example paper would not be very useful to start their own research and writing. Of course, students must not submit my model papers as their own and we do all we can to prevent them from doing so. If we suspect that the client might want to submit the paper as their own, we refuse working with them.
So, students tell you what and how to write?
They sometimes provide me with a lot of instructions and guidelines to follow. That is always helpful because then I know exactly what the final look of the assignment should be like. Most often, the instructions are moderate and straight to the point. It all depends on how complex the project is. Simple things don't require much guiding, while complicated and large projects call for an extensive research and more counseling. All this is usually accomplished before the project acceptance.
I assume the amount of writing you do also depends on the difficulty level. Is that correct?
That is a very perceptive assumption. Obviously, the biggest limit in writing is time. One cannot write faster to write more in a sense that some projects require a lot of research and it is often necessary to obtain not immediately available information. Sometimes, it means a couple of trips to different libraries and digging through many online and offline library databases. Occasionally, there are, however, projects that can be done from the top of one's head. The latter ones are based on one's imagination and perceptiveness. So far, my personal page-per-day record has reached 10 pages in one day. I must admit that is a very strenuous pace, though.
How did you reach that "record", then?
I probably should be a little more detailed here. The 10-page "record" was how fast I generated 10 pages of written output. However, if the time I devoted to gathering information and analyzing the subject gets also included, the work pace falls considerably.
It sounds that you know your trade very well.
I have systematized my work to be as efficient as possible. Since writing is a process, once you learn the steps that work best for you, the results can be swift. Still, it takes years of practice and there are no shortcuts.
We hope to continue this writing relationship with you, Anna.
I also look forward to continuous cooperation with CustomPapers.com.
