    i have to write a shorter essay every week for english class, concerning topics provided by my teacher. however this week i have to choose my own topic, (and style of text) and i have no idea what i'm going to write about?!:confused:

    been thinking about it for an hour now and i still don't know. it is the perfect oppurtunity to write about something that i like, but i don't know what i like

    any suggestions, what can i write about?

    Sleep on it. I'm sure you'll find some inspiration.

    Alternatively you could write an essay on message boards such as this one and how they benefit your mental development

    - Whether parents should be able to choose the sex, eye colour and etc of their future baby, or whether gay marriage should be legalised in the UK. Both controversial, and interesting.

    Last time I had to choose a subject in...
    Scottish Studies : I studied Early French Learning in Scottish nurseries.
    American West Studies : The Death of the American West in Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and The Wild Bunch.

    The first one because that's an aspect of my job, the second, because I love Western movies. And I got very good grades for both. Go for something you like, even if it doesn't seem to conventional. A film, a book, a society issue... anything, as long as you have fun, your essay will be great !

    That was last June, so that's not that old :p:

    When I can pick my own subject, I always go for things I love. It's much easier to get motivated, and it's actually really cool to write about something you love and care about. I had a 90 page dissertation to write last year, I did it on John Ford's Westerns. I've got another one to write this year, I'll do it on the vision of Scotland in British films. As you've guessed, cinema is my hobby.
    What's your hobby ? If it's a sport, write about that sport. An actor you love ? Write about a film he/she's in. Traveling ? A country you've been to.
    I'm sure you'll come up with something you'll enjoy doing. Keep us posted !
