Ideas: Finding a Topic
Read this example:
I’d rather cook than eat out at a restaurant. I like to watch cooking shows on TV. The cake I made for my brother’s birthday was not pretty, but it sure did taste good.
Choose a topic from the example. Write a draft using details that make the topic clear.
- Have I chosen a topic that I really like?
- Do I have something new to say about this topic?
- Am I writing about what I know and care about?
- Have I gathered enough information so that I’m ready to write?
