For centuries writers and poets have addressed all the spheres of human activities. They wrote about feelings, emotions, historic events, scientific inventions, biographies. But if I were a writer, I would still choose to write on the topic which is far from being original. I would definitely write about love.
First of all, love is a feeling that at least once was experienced by every person on our planet. And it is no wonder that people are more eager to read about something that they know from their own experience. However, love is deep and has many shades and meanings. It can be love to a man or a woman, a love of a parent to a child, a love of the God to his creation, a love to a friend or a relative. Yet, it always has the spirit of novelty and, thus, still gives a possibility to write something original.
Second, the theme of love can be exploited almost in any genre and does not have to be confined to a love story exclusively. If you read an interesting detective story, an adventure book or a science fiction novel, you will find out that one of the key topics will necessarily concern love.
Finally, mutual love is something every person dreams of. The desire to find it is so strong that people are ready to read the stories about the characters who overcome a lot of difficulties and meet their Mr. or Miss Right again and again.
So, as once the Beatles sang: “All we need is love”. That is why love would be an ideal subject matter for my book, allowing me to choose the genre and the composition of the book freely, making it popular, yet original.
