Topics in Threes: Dividing Ideas
November 16, 2000
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 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
3. These 10 years were 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
