Take a few moments to actually sit down and spend time thinking and writing about your topic.

Ask yourself questions like:

  • What do I already know about this topic?
  • What don't I know?
  • What do I assume?
  • What questions do I want to answer?

Once you've done that, go back and review what you've written and look for keywords, ideas, and themes to help start your searching.
