If you are writing about smoking, for instance, you want to mention that smoking kills almost half a million Americans a year. You can then focus on how to reduce the number of people smoking. Something like:

Smoking kills almost half a million Americans a year, but the best time reduce smoking is to address the three reasons people start to smoke in the first place.

What topic do you want to write about? Your title is your topic (How to Reduce Smoking Deaths). Your topic sentence is similar to what's written above.


Top Bun (Topic Sentence)
