Length: 5 – 7 pages, Double Spaced, Times New Roman, APA Headings, Title Page, References and APA citations. This is an example of an APA sample paper. Long quotes are not to be used in short papers of this nature, thus, all quotes should be from seven to twelve words and of course must use APA citations. This is a personal paper so the writing may use “me, my or I” however good writing uses pronouns very sparingly (less than ten pronouns in the whole paper – with careful writing this is possible). Do not use the third person (“the writer”).
