There are several ways to boost your ideas when you want to write: Brainstorming,
clustering, free writing, and keeping a journal.
I. BRAINSTORMING
Brainstorming is a process of listing any idea of one topic. The following is an
example:
Topic: Superstitions
Friday 13th eat scrambled eggs for breakfast on
breaking mirror day of a game
always wear pearl necklace don’t walk under ladder
look four-leaf clover don’t step on cracks
don’t stay on 13th floor wear green when I fly
in a hotel use lucky shoelaces in tennis shoes
sit in center of room for tests wear lucky T-shirt for games
switch watch to right wrist for test never start a trip on Friday
After listing some random ideas, the writer selects the idea which is related to one topic.
In the other word, the ideas are classified.
Topic: Superstitions
SCHOOL:
always wear pearl necklace
sit in center of room for tests
switch watch to right wrist for test
TRAVEL:
never start a trip on Friday
don’t stay on 13th floor in a hotel
wear green when I fly
SPORTS:
wear lucky T-shirt for games
use lucky shoelaces in tennis shoes
eat scrambled eggs for breakfast on day of game
Some ideas that can not be classified are deleted. From the classification, we can easily
write a paragraph.
Example:
Superstitions affect several aspects of my life. First of all, I have a lot of superstitions
about school, especially tests. For example, I always wear the pearl necklace that my
grandmother gave me when I have to take a test. I think it brings me good luck. When I
get to school, I always find a seat right in the middle of the room, sit down, and then
switch my watch to my right wrist before the test begins. In addition, I am very
superstitions about travelling. I will never start a trip on a Friday. When I have to stay in
the hotel, I refuse to sleep in a room in the 13th floor. For me, it is unlucky number. On
the first day of the trip, I always wear something green. Finally, like many other athletes,
I am very superstitious when it comes to my sport, tennis. When I dress for a match, I
always the same white T-shirt with my initials on it. I also use shoelaces in my sneakers.
On the day of the match, I always eat the same thing: eggs and a muffin. All in all, I am
superstitious about many aspects of my life.
Now try with your own topic:
Step I:
Step II:
A:
A.1.
A.2.
B:
B.1
B.2.
B.3
And so on
Step III: (Combine into one paragraph)


II. CLUSTERING
To cluster, follow these steps:
1. Write your topic in the center of a piece of paper and draw a circle around it.
2. Think about your topic and write any idea that come to mind in circles around the
main circle.
3. Connect these ideas to the center circle with a line.
4. Think about each of your new ideas, write more related ideas in circle around
them, and connect them to their corresponding ideas with a line.
5. Repeat the process until you run out of ideas.
The example above is called clustering. From the clustering, you can start writing (free
writing). Now try to make a short writing based on your clustering with Music as the
topic
