I am from a large family. I am the oldest of seven children. When it came to persuading my Mother that an item was necessary for my existence or the need was so great that I just had to go there, well… I lack luster. I do however, have a younger sister that can persuade an Eskimo that he needed ice! Some of us are talented in this area, some have to work at it. And I have, many times.
My first step is going to be the big one. What is it that I want to persuade my readers? That can only be fashioned from research. And that is the major key to finding my stance on the topic. I know very little about many of the topics to choose from. So initial research to find a topic that is interesting and has a good amount of information is critical.
I hope that I can do the task justice, given the fact that persuasion is not one of my strong points. Though my husband may beg to differ!
