    For example, my favorite gift on my 20's birthday,but I think it is too normal. I need some different ideas. Some said that I can read a lot,and however the storybook is not short paragraph. Are there something I can increase my new ideas so that I can think a good topic sentence in a short time.

    That's fine. Don't get too hung up on the theory- a topic sentence simply sets out the basic idea for a paragraph, so choose the gift you particularly liked and the reason and you're there. You can then work on it. It's often better to start with something and work on it rather than spending a lot of time worrying too much and being indecisive.
