Essay writing can be easier once you choose the right topic.

Writing an essay can be hard enough even if you already have the topic you need and some idea of what to say about it. But what can you do if choosing the right topic is already an issue? In cases when your teacher doesn't give you a topic to work with, this work can be quite a tough call. Let's see what you can do about it how you can choose the best research paper topic.

Research writing: choosing a narrow topic
What if you already have a topic, or rather a general direction, but it's so broad and vague you know you still have to choose some specific part of it? Let's say, you were tasked with writing an essay on Chinese culture. The topic is huge, taking into account 5000 years of Chinese history and massive cultural legacy. Well, research writing requires just that - research. Read up on some general information about it. See some imagery. Think of what would be really interesting to discuss in your particular situation. Chinese culture in America? Chinese culture in movies? Chinese art of some particular historical period? Chinese philosophy? Looks like you already have some topics to choose from.

Choosing from a list of topics
Now this is much easier, isn't it? Well, as a matter of fact, not necessarily. Topics for research paper can be many, and it may be quite difficult to choose one that will work best for you. Study your list of topics and decide whether you already have some knowledge and experience related to one (or a few) of them. Do you think you've got something to say on the subject? Do you think you would feel confident enough exploring those topics? Can you relate to the issues they involve? Don't choose the easiest one; choose the one you think to be most interesting.

Independent choice of a topic
This may seem like the hardest option of all. But hey, it means you can choose whatever seems the most relevant and interesting to you; that you can finally let others know what you think on one subject or another. There are things that interest you, right? What do you think so often about? What drives your attention so much you forget about anything else? Think of a couple of topics that illustrate your favorite subject in this way or another. Again, do some research to see what kind of potential this particular issue has.

Do you have some issues figuring out the topic that would feel right for you? You can always use some help - ask friends, family or Spider Essay Help.

Evaluation of the chosen topics
After you choose a few topics, think whether you can explore them thoroughly. Do you have any ideas related to the issue, do you think you can provide your readers with some new information, surprise them, impress them? Remember that some vague ranting on the subject won't do. You have to choose distinct ideas and find solid facts that support those ideas. Will you be able to do that?

When you are trying to decide just how interesting and relevant the topic of your choice is, make sure you can find reliable sources addressing the issue. In some cases it's better to find these before you even start organizing main ideas of your research paper.

Every time you are preparing to write a research paper and get busy looking for a perfect topic, make a sober estimate of your strengths and weaknesses in terms of exploring certain issues and providing convincing facts.

Theres an old joke that goes, Chicago has two seasons, winter and construction, which I guess is funny to those who dont actually live here. For the rest of us, its a none-to-gentle reminder of the circle of life; men fix roads, weather destroys roads, men fix roads; good news for construction workers, bad news for innocent commuters such as myself.


Ah, here is 14 February ! Another Valentines day for the year 2008. The world celebrates this day by sending cards, flowers and gifts to their lovers.

Where There's No Smoke, There's Ire

On January 1st, the state of Illinois began an all out smoking ban in public places. This came to me as a bit of a shock. Oh sure, the state had announced that it was going to institute such a ban, but I never really believed it would come to pass, at least not in the city of Chicago.

Call it a good or bad or an undesirable habit. But I cant give up the practice of stopping someone on a public road and talking with him. An instant friendship maker kind of strategy.
