think about a topic, it may be helpful
to try and use division and classification. The shorter
the more specific the topic will
need to be, so you will need to subdivide the too-general
you can manage in the page length.
The longer your paper needs to be, the more general your
be, allowing you to cover more ground.
Division can also help you think about organization
in long papers.
If you divide the topic into several
subsections, perhaps each subsection can be a single
paragraph or a single
page of the longer essay. The chart below may
give you some ideas.
