Remember that when you paraphrase or summarise, it is not enough simply to replace individual words one by one from the source with your own words; doing this results in a paraphrase that is too similar to the original, mainly because it will have the same sentence pattern. To avoid this trap, make sure that you fully understand the text or text section before you start writing and that you can restate it in your own independent way.
