In Indonesia, English is taught as compulsory subject especially for Junior High School students. There are four skills that must be mastered by the students in English teaching learning process namely speaking, listening, reading and writing. Many learners regard writing as the most difficult and complicated skill. To compose a good writing, the students should consider in some aspects such as content, structure, mechanic, grammar and vocabulary but many students also get difficult in getting the idea. They cannot arouse the idea to come because of that they will confuse with their writing. This study was Experimental Research.
