|Prioritize: make sure the topic you've chosen is actually arguable. Don't argue that you 'think' or 'feel' a certain way about a topic. Argue that some aspect of that topic is or isn't functioning, that some part of it needs to be changed, fixed, revised, etc.
In other words, select a topic that has another 'side' to it, a side that someone in your reading audience could legitimately disagree with.
