Think hamburger! 

Get focused! If you're only thinking about exact wording, punctuation, and grammar, you're preventing your most amazing ideas from coming out. Save the stress of cleanup (editing) and polishing of your writing for later.

For now, let's think about your ideas and where they may live on the paper. When your paper is hungry for words, think hamburger! 

  1. Start with the top bun! if it helps, draw a picture of the top bun or download our free THINK Hamburger template. Then note down the main point you are trying to make (e.g., sell my products, invite customers, etc.). Then, write one sentence that introduces that idea (e.g., we're having a sale).

  2. Then think about what's in the middle of your burger. The meat represents the most important supporting statement for your point (e.g., Prices slashed!). Other burger layers, like lettuce, include supporting details or facts like a timeline, list of examples/products, etc.

  3. Finish with the bottom bun. This is where you sum up your writing with a very convincing finish and maybe include a call to action. (e.g.,  hurry, this sale is the biggest yet and won't last. So, don't wait).
