Using a subject-by-subject approach, write a contrast essay in which you discuss the differences between life in a small town and life in a large city based on your experiences. Be sure to use specific details and examples in order to create vivid images in your readers’ minds.
Write an essay based on an extended analogy between a house and our planet Earth.
First brainstorm or freewrite, because analogies demand free use of our imagination. Next write a rapid and free “discovery draft.” Let it sit at least one day, then develop your concept through at least one more draft, adding the kinds of vivid images needed to spark the reader’s imagination.
