This page is the first of a series of pages that guide you through editing your topic list. From this page you may choose to modify subtopics, add additional topics, and delete topics.

If you would like to change your subtopics, click Modify Subtopics. On the Update Subtopics page you may delete any given subtopic or add new subtopics. To delete a subtopic, select the subtopic and click the Delete Subtopic Button.

To select an item, click the circle beside the item you wish to select. Once an item is selected, a black dot will appear inside the circle.

To add a new subtopic use the Random Topic Generator, which produces the first half of a new subtopic. If you like the subtopic starter, fill in the rest of the sentence. Then click the Add New Subtopic button. If you do not like the current start, click the New Random Topic button.When you are finished updating your subtopics, click Done.
