1. Write About Anything
The 'Backwards' Research Guide for Writers - Using your Life for Reflection, Connection, and Inspiration - Sonya Huber
Sonya Huber [+]
This book will not focus on the correct method for source citations, though a style guide is included in the index and the ethics and practice of quoting are covered in later chapters. Many excellent resources are available for the nuts and bolts of locating sources. Instead, this guide begins with that daunting assignment: Write about anything. Maybe an instructor has already assigned you an open-ended paper, or maybe you are a writer with a need to find a new and compelling subject. Either way, you are the beginning of this search. This guide will help you evaluate your level of curiosity, an essential ingredient for a seeker of any kind, and then point you in the direction of following that curiosity.
