    Choose a Topic for Your Essay
    Every essay starts with the topic. Usually tutors assign the topic, but sometimes students get
    opportunity to choose it themselves. We’ll discuss here both possibilities.
    1.Topic Has Been Assigned
    You may have no choice as to your topic. If this is the case, you still may not be ready to jump
    to the next step.
    Think about the type of paper you are expected to write. Should it be a general overview, or a
    specific analysis of the topic? If it should be an overview, then you are probably ready to move
    to the next step. If it should be a specific analysis, make sure your topic is fairly specific. If it is
    too general, you must choose a narrower subtopic to discuss.
    For example, the topic "KENYA" is a general one. If your objective is to write an overview, this
    topic is suitable. If your objective is to write a specific analysis, this topic is too general. It should
    be narrowed to something like "Politics in Kenya" or "Kenya's Culture", or even “Peculiarities of
    Kenyan Cuisine”. But before starting an essay, have it approved by the teacher. Once you have
    determined that your topic will be suitable, you can move on.
    2. Topic Has Not Been Assigned
    If you have not been assigned a topic, then the entire world lies before you. Sometimes that
    seems to make the task of starting even more intimidating. Actually, this means that you are
    free to choose a topic of interest to you, which will often make your essay a stronger one. First
    write down some subjects that interest you or you have a basic knowledge of. An endless
    number of topics will be suitable.
    If you have trouble thinking of subjects, start by looking around you. Is there anything in your
    surroundings that interests you? Think about your life. What occupies most of your time? That
    might make for a good topic. Do not evaluate the subjects yet; just write down anything that
    comes to mind.
    If you can think of at least a few topics that would be appropriate, you must simply consider
    each one individually. Put some thought in to how you feel about that topic and the purpose of
    your essay. Is your purpose to persuade people to believe as you do, or explain to people how
    to complete a particular task, to educate people about some person, place, thing or idea, or
    something else entirely? No matter what the purpose is, the topic you choose must fit it and
    have a coherent message. If your goal is to educate, be sure you are well-informed and able to
    conduct necessary research.
    If you must persuade the reader, be sure it is a subject in which you choose is one that you are
    at least moderately passionate about. Of course, the most important factor in choosing a topic
    is the number of ideas you have about that topic. Even if none of the subjects you thought of
    seem particularly appealing, try just choosing one to work with. It may turn out to be a better
    topic than you thought at first and it will allow you to focus your research
