Before writing a topic sentence, it is often advisable to consider the types of support that you can use.  Asking yourself how you can make an interesting paragraph is also helpful in composing a paragraph that will not be banal.

To create a topic sentence ask "What about it [the topic]?  For instance, with the topic of "the job of waiter," ask what about the job of waiter?  Your answer is the topic sentence.  An example may be something like this:  Patience, alacrity, and politeness are three qualities essential to the job of waiter.

One for the restaurants in town:  There is little variety in the restaurants of our town.

One for the worst meal I have ever eaten:  The first meal I ever cooked myself was probably the worst meal that I have ever eaten.
