When I write some papers, I always meet some problems in writing a topic. I have no idea what to wirte.And because I am not a native English speaker, the words I use is not as much as accurate. I am stucked.

Try these techniques, freewriting, where you write the first things that pop into your head and don't stop til you have filled a page. Or brainstorming, where you make a mind map of any ideas, no matter how starnge they may be. 


What you do then is to sort them out, what is good and bad. The blank page is the writers worst enemy in any language so try these methods to get you started...

I agree with Kev. It would also help if you will try to read a lot. While it is true that you won't encounter every possible topic under the sun, it will somehow help you make connections so you can put the pieces together.
