Question:

How do I brainstorm for a writing assignment?

Inactive
Gaia V.
Answer:

Once you know the writing prompt for an upcoming assignment, you can start thinking of ideas that interest you within the parameters of the assignment. Find a quiet place to be creative and start generating ideas through exercises such as free writing, spider diagrams, listing, clustering, etc. Ultimately, you must also ask yourself why each potential topic matters, what you could say about it, and why it would be interesting for your readers. Most importantly, your ideas should be interesting to you. This will ensure that you are motivated to work on the assignment and probably make it more interesting for your readers!

Answer:

The theme is the underlying message, meaning, or idea of a novel, short story, poem, or play. It is like the heart of the text, and it is where the most universal aspects of the human experience are found. It is the "big picture" idea.

Answer:

A thesis statement is a concise summary of the main point or argument of an essay. In Standard American English, the thesis statement is typically a single sentence that makes the topic of the essay and the writer's purpose clear, and it usually appears towards the end of the introductory paragraph. After stating the thesis, the writer should then reiterate, restate and support this main idea throughout the rest of the essay.
