Once you have an outline written, please post it -- along with your draft thesis statement.
thesis: Ernest Hemingway gained experience writing through newspaper journalism and furthered his literary education through his many literary influences.
It's planned out but I don't know how I should narrow of what I got right now down to my thesis.
That's not a thesis statement. It's a statement that everyone knows.
Your thesis statement must include factual information (which you already have) plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and what you intend to prove by the end of your paper. (If your statement is simply factual, then there's nothing to prove!)
Read carefully and follow ALL directions.
This is one of the very best places I've seen online to help students write good thesis statements. It shows you sentences that aren't thesis statements and how to turn each one into real thesis statements.
