    @laken.oliver:  I would go with Greek mythology, though you may want to narrow it down a little more than that!

    For a college paper, I once compared and contrasted the different types of icing as they pertain to wedding cake. The teacher (who had intended for it to be a serious, persuasive essay) took it as a personal insult, but I still got an A-!

    what’s the class/purpose of the paper?

    these both seem to be in a similar area = classics 

    I always go with something more specific/weird so other people aren’t even remotely close and my paper will stand out

    you could even relate cleopatra to a greek goddess and do a comparison essay 

    you could look at modern representations of a mythical figure OR cleopatra

    These are HUGE subjects so I’d narrow it down alot – I wrote a 25 page paper on just Shakespeare’s Cleopatra and representations of her.

    I always wrote papers like that on twins, sickness aboard cruise ships, moissanite, etc. something that interested me that I could hammer pages out quickly. 

    Greek mythology is a good topic but how many pages is it?

     I’d prefer to listen about Greek mythology, but what do you enjoy more, and what will be easier to write?  Have fun with it!

    @laken.oliver:  Hmm. I don’t think people write “papers” in the real world outside of technical reports or perhaps journalism. So that’s weird that a business class is having you do that. I’d probably choose Egypt myself.

    If it’s just trying to teach you how to write papers I’d find something there’s a lot of facts about–some kind of disease (I know you don’t wanna do leukemia/depression, but diseases are the easiest things to write about). 

    You’ll probably need a ton of references, and references are easier to find when you’re looking at cold, hard fact.  There are a lot of books about Cleopatra and Greek Mythology, but it’s more books with stories and stuff like that which is harder to put in a reference–studies and statistics are super easy to quote and reference.

    I’d worry more about finding a subject that interests you if it’s creative writing or a paper that’s based on content rather than format.

    @laken.oliver:  I would start with greek mythology and do a little research and narrow it down to a fun topic!

    Is it supposed to be a persuasive paper?
