Why is this so hard?

I can't come up with a paper topic.

Why did I sign up for Advanced Expository Writing? I didn't like the regular course last semester, so why would I like the advanced class? I don't know why I do this to myself (actually it's not my fault, I needed some more credits, and all the classes I wanted were cancelled or had scheduling conflicts).

I have a paper due later this morning, and I still can't come up with a topic! I can't stand writing about literature. I was hoping (foolishly) when I signed up that I would be able to create my own material, no analyze the work of others. Oh well, I guess I should just suck it up and do it, but I have this problem where it is almost impossible for me to work on something that I'm not interested in. Even if I'm not interested in something, it helps if I think it will help me later in life, and I know I'm not going to write any papers when I get out of school.
