I need to write a one page response essay to the quote "you can no more win a war than you can an earthquake"..........please help! Not good at writing. Thank you
Follow ALL the steps of the writing process -- DO NOT SKIP the prewriting steps! This is when you generate your ideas and decide which you will use and which you will toss.
For this topic, I'd start brainstorming on the second half first -- what do you think it means to say "you can't win [against] an earthquake"?
So ... read through all those steps in the link above, and for now concentrate on the prewriting steps. Just dive in and list or freewrite your reactions. Loosen up your thoughts, and you will be surprised at how many ideas you really do have in your mind.
Once you get a plan or loose outline formed, feel free to re-post if you'd like more ideas from us. The ideas on this topic, however, need to come from you.
I think I might just compare surviving to "winning".
