Third, make sure you are still the main voice of your paper. This is more challenging with multiple sources. When we write, we want the main focus of our papers to be what we are saying, not what others have written. Your sources should support or add to your argument. Do not overwhelm your paper with sources! Rather, piece your ideas together and use the sources within your own argument. When you use multiple sources, think of yourself as the guide that leads people through a discussion of your topic. The sources are the people having the discussion, and you have to show how each one plays a role in the dialogue.
