do you have a topic?

When writing articles one might wonder: how do you come up with good topics? 
I would say: look at your life. We all spend time thinking all day long, we have opinions on everything, from why did starbucks open a shop in milan to how to fix poverty, or comments on how to improve our job.

All these are topics we can discuss and use as a starting point for an article. They’re tricks to write.
What will then become the final article might be totally different, it might be something about languages, or how the poverty is created by amazon or whatever. We don’t know.
A topic is simply a way to ignite writing, but it’s only when you write that you refine your thoughts, you give them a form, you model them.

And as absurd as it might seem, even talking about how to find a topic, is a topic.
