If you are writing an argumentative paper there are many topics that you can use. Consider the list of sample topics below and see if any of them spark a creative topic for your particular assignment:
Once you have your topic it is time to write the essay. If ever you begin to feel as though your essay writing does not measure up, remember that you are not alone. At some point or another every student feels this way during their academic career. Many students begin to feel as though they are not going to make it, or as though their essay will never be finished because they are just a fraud. This is why talking with other students can be really helpful. In talking to and working with other students in your class you not only get many samples of essays to review, but you can start to realize that everyone shares the same anxieties and there is no need to feel threatened if another student is progressing at a seemingly faster rate than you. Just because a few students turned their essay in early does not mean they are not scared or that you are the only one floundering.
If nothing else, you can avoid seeing the students who pressure you or create competition and just remain close to those who are generous and bright within your class. Get help from your school writing center or start a writing group. Go to writing conferences and don’t let other students slow you down.
