"Choose a topic you feel strongly about."
* What do you feel strongly about? A sport? A particular song? Music in general? Honesty? Justice? Your religion? A special friend? Abortion? Family?
"Then, think of a single concrete IMAGE that suggests your feelings.
"In a paragraph, include your image in a way that communicates your feelings but doesn't express them directly."
Once you've chosen your topic and an image, write your paragraph. We'll be glad to comment on it if you post it here.
ok. so lets say i chose to write on religion...what "image" can i write on. i still dont get that
Religions have many symbols -- Ten Commandments, a Pieta statue, cross, menorrah, crescent moon and star, etc.
Perhaps it's the word "image" causing your difficulty?
image = (1) a mental picture of something not actually present : IMPRESSION (2) : a mental conception held in common by members of a group and symbolic of a basic attitude and orientation
(3) a vivid or graphic representation or description
(4) FIGURE OF SPEECH
(5) a popular conception (as of a person, institution, or nation) projected especially through the mass media <promoting a corporate image of brotherly love and concern
For example, some one says the word "religion." Close your eyes and what do you "imagine?"
ok. all of that helped alot. i will be sure to post up my paragraph as soon as im done :)
one more thing..is my writing supposed to be on my topic or the image??
like religiom or the crecent moon and the star???
Image(symbol): crecent and star
The crecent moon and star symbolize the Lord that a religion Islam follows. It is not exactly a symbol of Islam but an image or indirect symbol of it. The moon describes the lunar calendar that they follow. Many Islamic countries follow this symbol by keeping it on their flag.
