Writing essays regarding the relative similarity between topics considered to be different is a great challenge for the budding writer. In selecting topics, these tips should be kept in mind:
- Get started on time
- Get help if you need it
- What topics are trending
Brainstorming for ideas can be a more lengthy process than you think. If you dive into it without budgeting enough time you will end up eating into time that should have been left over for the actual writing process.
Help comes in different forms. If you have writer’s block you can ask other people in the same class as you to brainstorm topics with you. They may help you to come up with ideas that would have been invisible from your own perspective alone. If you have no friends or they are unable to help you, considering speaking with a tutor or hiring someone to brainstorm with you. There are many online options to help with this.
There is always a news story that captures the public’s attention and holds it for a while. This was easier when mass media and social media were not as evolved but it still happens today. Use that characteristic of the public consciousnesses to propel your own writing further.
Having followed those tips, you probably would have come up with a list similar to the one given below:
- Compare the lives of people in the arts with those of people who are more conventionally employed.
- How does the modern education system differ from the one developed by the Ancient Romans and Greeks?

These topics can be used as practice to ensure that you progress regularly.
