Hello, thank you for doing this. I am having a problem with my paper I'm currently writing with not knowing what is important to include since my paper is extremely long currently and I feel it is too detailed (like you said about the baby analogy) it has been hard for me to cut it down from my perspective since everything is important.

How do you start into a mindset of writing when you don't have full data or story; do you still go ahead or you wait until you have everything.
Cheng Chen

When is a good time for asking for comments/feedback?

For writing papers, do you think it’s more effective starting with brainstorming or mind mapping? And how much time should we spend in revision on these forms of prewriting vs. time on the structure of the paper?
DONG HYUN SHIN

part of my difficulty is that i try to mimic the voice, structures, and languages from papers I read, because i know they are good papers (published) so that my writing should be on par with them.In doing so, i lose my voice and become inefficient. Any suggestion on this issue?
Marina Sessim
51:18
How to deal with the fact that the content of the dissertation is changing with time? I want to start writing but my advisor and I go through several iterations of changing the technical content of the chapters, so I find myself very nervous about all the future writing I’ll have to do…

Ruba Sajdeya
01:06:22
I enjoy reading articles that have souls, I mean the kind where you feel the writer is talking to you, make you laugh, angry, etc. However, most scientific papers are written in a very dry neutral scientific language. Is it good practice to show some character in original research articles or thesis, or should I remain neutral , or more "dry"
Amanda Catron (she/her)
01:07:04
Hi Ruba! That question is probably very specific to your area of study. I would suggest asking your advisor or committee!
Urszula Snigurska
01:08:01
What is a general structure of a paragraph? Do I need to summarize the paragraph in one sentence at the beginning of the paragraph? Do I need to summarize the paragraph in the last sentence of the paragraph?
Amanda Catron (she/her)
01:08:34
Hi Urszula! We're short on time, could you please email Dr. Simpson your great question? His email is simpsonm@ufl.edu

There are certain things that I may not agree with, but I have been reading a book by Angelika H. Hofmann titled, “Writing in the Biological Sciences”. I’m not a biological sciences person but it has a lot of helpful tips for writing, writing structure, reducing wordiness, etc.!
Kelsea LeBeau
01:11:44
It helps elaborate on a lot of topics Dr. Simpson has mentioned!
Chie Ishii
01:11:47
We have many common questions here in a chat box. Could we all get answers after the session via e-mail? It seems to be time-effective compared to asking to Mr.Simpson one by one.
Amanda Catron (she/her)
01:12:28
Hi Chie! If you'd like me to help gather answers to your questions please don't hesitate to email me: catron@ufl.edu

I know Dr. Simpson mentioned that he will speak in two weeks about research paper writing. However, many people (undergrads and online MS students) in MCB 5205 have a lengthy research summary due Nov. 23. Is there any opportunity for us to ask research-related questions in the near future?
Amanda Catron (she/her)
01:17:00
Hi Bethany, email me and we can discuss! :)
