My strategy was just thinking deeper and being descriptive and adding details. I started right after the 3 topics 5 questions assignment. At that point I knew what I wanted to write about and what my thesis would be. So I kept the same topic from the very beginning but I also thought about changing it but didn’t because I wanted to do something where I knew for a fact nobody else would even be close to doing. I developed my thesis from first finding the main questions and topic. Then I slimmed it down to one main thing without it being too broad. This may be crazy, but my biggest challenge was trying not to make it too long. I kept taking stuff out and backspacing. I deleted several entire paragraphs so that it wouldn’t be too long. I also felt like I was adding too much detail and being too descriptive, so I was backspacing because of that too. And also peer editing helped me delete a few things and add some things as well. It was easy to reach the length that it needed to be to turn it in. Like I said, I reached 5 pages easily and could’ve kept going till at least 7. I didn’t expect for the research to have that much detail that I could use and for more ideas to keep coming to me that fast.

    It sounds like you found the perfect topic to write about if you find you could just keep going and going. Eliminating extra words/paragraphs is a difficult thing to do, but it is often necessary.
