Exploring a topic

So you have thought of a subject. Now you need an angle. Or perhaps you have an angle, but you need to say more.

Editing_and_proofreading_blog_316It has been said that there are only a few story lines, and for centuries writers have been looking for new angles on the same stories. The same is true of topics. They all fall under just a few headings.

To make sure you have thought of all aspects worthy of comment, remember Phraseems, standing for:

  • Political
  • Historical
  • Religious
  • Artistic/aesthetic/literary
  • Social
  • Economic
  • Ecological/environmental
  • Moral/ethical
  • Scientific/technological

Whatever your topic is, there will be something to say under at least a couple of these headings.
