Using iA Writer for Academic Writing?

After using Notion for a while, I decided to try out iA Writer as they both have a similar minimalistic aesthetic and both support keyboard-only working. I want to fully work with iA writer for my academic writing, but there are two things which I could not figure out quite yet.

  1. Is there any way to make footnotes appear at the end of a page instead of the end of the document? (strictly speaking, aren't notes appearing at the end of the document called endnotes anyway?)
  2. is it possible to combine iA Writer with processing plugins from reference management software like Zotero? I am looking for functionalities like this one for Word, where you use a keyboard shortcut to put in certain references in the text. Problem is, Zotero only provides Plugins for LibreOffice, Google Docs and Word. The Zotero Documentations lists [a few plugins for plain text editors](https://www.zotero.org/support/plugins#word_processor_and_writin

β€œDo it the way I tell you or get points off”

So this story takes place yesterday and today. My English teacher is very uptight with her grading and takes it very seriously. She sometimes takes points off for things like grammar on a test about a novel. Basically a bunch of normally A students have b’s and c’s.

So on to the meat of the story. Yesterday we were assigned a research project where we research a controversial topic and make a slideshow/movie using Picture Story 3. In our notes we needed three articles annotated, and notes on a separate sheet including two quotes for each article, and two paraphrased facts each. I decided, since she gives low grades to slackers, that is do some extra work. Instead of paraphrasing with bullet points, (it said nothing about bullet points on the rubric) I wrote full sentences in a mini paragraph form thinking it would boost my grade. So at the end of class I hand her my papers, and she sorts through to grade. I knew I messed up when I saw her get a grin and look at me with these malicio

How do you quote from a TV show?

So I'm writing a paper and I need to find a quote to back up a claim I've made in the paper. The paper is made in APA format. So how do I format that quote?

EXAMPLE: some character says "Hey, don't throw shoes!" from a TV show and I want to put that quote in my paper, how do I do that?

I've seen how to quote from a movie in MLA & APA format that you say what movie you're using earlier in the paper and the bibliography, insert the quote with quotation marks, and in parenthesis, include the producer and director. "Game over man!" (Carroll and Scott) <-- example of the format for movie quote from the video I saw.

Thanks for any help

[OFFER] English PhD. Level Editing and Research Skills, Cheap!

I'm looking to make a little extra cash for the holidays and flex some of my own personal muscles that I haven't used for a while on various writing and subjects; I am personally interested in what people write about, so some of this is fun for me.

As mentioned in Rule 1, I won't write a paper for you or do your homework; if I feel that's what you're asking me to do, I'll decline and refund your money.

However, I'm happy to help edit, tutor, or kickstart research for you. I can help you develop an outline for your project, take a read of what you've done, check MLA/APA, any of those things.

Here's a menu of prices:

  1. Outlines: I'll help you plot out an outline, or create one based off of your input for you to work off of, with suggestions. I am assuming on good faith that this is NOT an assignment (as in, create an outline), but if it sounds like one I'll say no. [$5]
  2. Research Overview: I'll do some solid research and develop a list of sources for you ranked from most applica

The best tool for writing citations in MLA, APA and Chicago

Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL): https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/mla_style/mla_formatting_and_style_guide/mla_formatting_and_style_guide.html

I am a third year English major with a concentration in Technical writing. I have had to write so many citations and there are two things that always surprises me when helping other English majors and non-majors. One is that college-aged students think they can still use bibliography generators and the other is that people do not know about this site. Hopefully, this can help some people out there. As many of us know, bibliography generators are often times not the best so this site gives countless examples of anything you could need for a citation and is extremely up to date. This can avoid plagiarism issues as well as making it super simple to do your own bibliographies with clear outlines

Ten Essential Tips for College Students

I've been in college for four years now. In the past four years, I've made my fair share of mistakes, discoveries, and just little tricks that make the whole experience infinitely easier. I figured that I'd post a few of these for everyone's perusal, and hopefully it will help someone out! While I may not post all ten right away, they will be up within the day.

1.) Textbooks

The bane of every poor college student's existence, textbooks are a money vacuum - plain and simple. However, there are so many ways to mitigate the excessive cost of your textbooks.

First, while I would never advocate pirating textbooks, I will say that you'd be surprised what a textbook name or author's last name will turn up on the popular torrenting sites. They may be an older edition, but the changes between two editions are usually minimal.

*Second, your university library is likely to have copies of some textbooks available. If you are the early bird, you may just get the worm in this instance (T

Research Paper Writing Guide from the Best Essay Writing Service on Reddit

Students’ life is one of the most exciting periods for every person who studies in high school, college, or university. New friends, funny stories, outstanding professors, amazing events, and lots of memorable moments that will remind about years of education. Everything seems fine; even numerous home tasks cannot distress you unless one day your professor gives you the assignment to write a research paper. Now you have faced a real challenge because writing a research paper is not a piece of cake. To cope with this task successfully and provide a quality paper, you need to have excellent critical thinking skills and be good in analysis. Besides, a research paper is not a 3-page essay that you can write in one day. You need to spend much time gathering credible information to satisfy the requirements of the assignment.

What a Research Paper is

Even when students have enough time to write a good research paper, they often fail to get the highest grade. The most common reason for t

If I make reference to the title of a text in my essay, do I need to put it in my bibliography?

If this is an inappropriate place to ask my apologies. I am having a panicked scour of the net and my study guide and I can't seem to find the answer. My predicament is if I make reference to a text in my essay do I have to put it in my bibliography. For example, "In the play characters make references to other plays from the time period such as X and Y, which allows the audience...". The format is MLA and any advice is appreciated.
