Topics in Threes: Dividing Ideas

 November 15, 2001

Standard essays consist of three body paragraphs. To write three, think of a topic in three ways. Tonight, we'll look at our own lives over the past 10 years to divide our ideas into three.

Quickly note your answers to these three prompts:

1. What three important things did you learn over the past ten years and how did you learn them?

2. What were your three most important personal events in the last ten years?

3. Imagine that the past 10 years was one-half a journey. What three things remain for you to accomplish in the next ten years of this journey?

Now, write three fifty-word paragraphs on one of the three topics above.
