    What should I do?

    I am a freshman and I need some help with writing an original essay. Frankly speaking, I don't know which topic will be the best for me. Anyway, I can write about sport, travels or personal experience. But the thing is each time I started to write, I can't concentrate and have no idea how to write fluently and interesting. What should I do?
    Thank's in advance!

    Thank you for your answer.
    I'm really sorry, but it won't help me. I tried to write it on my own without success. So I would better order it online. can you give me an advice?

    Re: What should I do?

    I'd suggest taking up an apprenticeship in carpentry, or something you're interested in. You can't live forever on other people's work.
    Sorry, I'm not sure what an unqualified "freshman" connotes (since I'm not American), but if it's university, I'd suggest taking a year off for preparation - or really, consider a career in which written expression in not crucial.

    Raymott already directed you to a site with some pretty good writing advice. What else do you want him to do?

    What is your native language?

    Actually, that was Rover.
    The OP wants someone to write an original essay for him, or to direct him to where he can get one - if I've understood him correctly.

    I got the same impression.

    A freshman is a first-year student in a high school or undergraduate university or college. Many Americans spend two years as freshmen: their first year of high school and their first year of college or university.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: What should I do?

    So, do we know what the OP means? Has he just entered high school (in which case he might have a chance), or is he at university or college. I didn't want to be unfair to him - my comments were made assuming that he meant university.

    I suspect that Marvel is the person who also posted here : https://www.englishforums.com/Englis....htm#sc2284541 (note the avatar - a DC Comics character rather a Marvel Comics one, but the same casual approach to cheating is there.) .
