Try these techniques from Max Atkinson for incorporating groups of three into your work:

Use three identical words – as in Tony Blair’s famous use of ‘Education, education and education’ to set out his top three priorities for Government.

Use three different words – such as ‘Friends, Romans, Countrymen’ from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

Use three phrases – as in Abraham Lincoln’s ‘Government of the people by the people for the people’.

Use three sentences – as demonstrated by Winston Churchill’s historic description of the Battle of Britain: ‘This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.’
