scarlet's walk


Okay, now I need some suggestions. I need to write an article of about 600 words for my writing course, following certain guidelines in terms of writing style. I need to choose a subject that interests me, involves some research, and consider who my audience is, and what my purpose is.

So, it's broad!! There are too many things to choose from yet nothing is springing to mind and I've been thinking about this all afternoon. The last article assignment I did for this course, I wrote about self-injury (which the tutor said was quite good for a first attempt which I was happy about as it was the first assignment :)), so this time I want to go for something a bit lighter.

Some things I've been thinking about are...
x. craft related - eg, the art of letter writing, the growth in the scrapbooking industry
x. zine related - eg, people taking the media into their own hands
x. travel related - eg, people taking gap years or more commonly now, career breaks

At the moment the career break themed article is standing out as the best possibility really, but none of them seem ideal.

This has been my problem of late; finding topics to write about. I feel like nothing I'm interested in right now is worth writing about. I mean, could I really get a 600 word, researched article about lipgloss? (just kidding, really).

I think I need to get away from the computer for awhile (my headache's come back) and back to the pen & paper. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated... ♥

{other possible topics I am thinking about, which may or may not fall into the category of being "lighter": homelessness in Adelaide, volunteering overseas, the existance of faeries... okay, I can't think of anything else right now. Grrrr).
