Prompt to Topic Sentence

The key to excellent responses when responding to a prompt is "nailing" the topic. To do this well, the writer needs to begin with a topic sentence that turns the prompt into a topic sentence. This is really as simple as deciding what the prompt is asking you to address and putting it into a sentence.
