A List of Intriguing Essay Topics for Successful Writing
When you are told to write an essay and to choose a topic, the complete creative freedom of the assignment can be overwhelming. You may find it difficult to decide on a topic. However, there are a few things you can do to narrow your list and to decide which topic to write on. For successful writing, it is necessary to first articulate a good topic.
One of the easiest ways to decide on a topic is by taking a look at your own interests. When you choose a topic from among your own interests, you are more likely to have success because you will enjoy what you are writing. This will make it easier for you to build and think of ideas; words will flow more easily.
You can also look for a topic among current events. Search local or international news to find a topic that has appeared several times in the past few weeks. If the topic or news story is fairly common and has been repeated across news channels and internet sites, you’ll be able to find a good amount of evidence and resources for your writing.
Another way to come up with a topic is by looking at trends. Trends are topics, ideas, events, products, fashions, etc that come up in the public eye and become popular. Trends are so popular that it should be easy to find resources for your writing. The entertainment industry is full of possible writing topics, such as the popularity of reality shows and their influence on American culture.
However you choose to decide on a topic, remember these three suggestions: first, choose a topic that interests you. This will ensure you have plenty to talk about. Second, choose a topic with widely available resources. If you can find several resources, you won’t run out of things to say. Third, make sure the topic is a topic you can prove. Choose a topic that has two sides to be argued, and pick a side. Based on these three suggestions, here is a list of possible topics to get you started:
- The spread of Ebola in Africa could have been prevented
- How the conflict in Ferguson should have been handled
- Does discrimination really exist in America today?
- Gay marriage
- Sex scandals and celebrities
- Breastfeeding in public
- The legalization of Marijuana
These are just a few topics chosen that might peak your interest. Each topic involves some kind of news headline within the last few weeks and each one can be argued several ways, for or against. It doesn’t matter which side you take; as long as you can prove it with evidence. Pick the one that is easiest for you and the most interesting. Whatever you are most passionate about will be the best, and easiest, topic for you. You will be successful when your writing is interesting and pertinent to today’s world. Use these helpful hints and suggestions to choose a topic that will make certain your writing is successful.
