My mother was a teacher. I can assure you that there is nothing fun about having a strict mother who was a teacher of English at a local high school. Severally, I had heard the phrase "as the child of a teacher…." In fact, I was never surprised that my mother would make me repeat a 1000 word paper because it was "not up to standard".

However, I am grateful that I grew up knowing that every perfect paper was supposed to be free of any errors in structure, grammar, formatting, and order of thought. I also developed some principles that would make me pay attention to the content of the paper. However, one of my major areas remained citing sources and formatting them well. In as much as my mother would help me, I realized that the systems undergo changes regularly and minor changes such an italicizing are added.

I had problems with citing sources throughout my high school education until I joined college. My first assignment required 20 sources and the instructor had given us only 36 hours to complete the assignment. I had no one to consult from, and I did not want to rely on my mother. This paper would cover over half of my final grade, and so I did not want to mess anything up. I was so sure that the formatting of the references would give me a lot of problems and that was my biggest worry at that point.

I decided to begin by conducting intensive research on the paper and cite the sources using my technique then I would later contact a friend for help. While conducting research, there was an advertisement on one of the websites I had opened regarding a citation machine.

When I clicked on the advert icon, I realized that there was software that could be used to create citations. This first one asked me to pay, and I ignored and decided to search for another. My Google search engine provided several options, and there was even a blog comparing some of these types of software.

I was so excited when I found one that was easy to use. All I had to do was to feed the software with some information such as the title of the book or scholarly article. The citation generator would then give me options for the source I needed to cite. All I had to do was copy and paste. The best part was that I could sign in and create a database of all my sources so that I could access them whenever and however.

My paper was perfect, and my lecturer was even shocked that I had done such a perfect job.

Creating a perfect format for your references may be strenuous and time-consuming. With a citation generator, it becomes easy and fast to complete this part of your paper.

I got an A* for this paper, and it took me a short while to complete the formatting of my sources correctly.
