So I am going to write my master thesis in psychology. It is expected to be of roughly publishable quality since I am a research master student. I always struggled with writing and am often overwhelmed with the vagueness of theories and concepts in this field. I often get lost and thrown of path without a good structure. What books can you recommend me that are for "dummies".
The things I would like to improve and know more about are:
- The right attitude for academic writing
- Academic writing pitfalls (e.g. when does something become too speculative?)
- Smart ways to structure the process
- Ways to make my writing more readable and make it flow better
Are there recommendable books that address such issues that are considered standard in any way?
