Sure, most people could (probably would) lead to the philosophical sense, but let's say that the topic you have is 'nothing', and you couldn't write it using the philosophical or psychological sense. How would one start writing about nothing? I'm sure that a blank page would be enough for an English teacher to understand

Write something about the word itself? Or how to start with nothing.

That sounds interesting, well, there is a huge meaning in silence and a blank page. sometimes there are things that we can not explaing them with any language or any writhing, and for that it is better to keep quiet and just leave it blank. it is a mystery.

I'd be held in a mental institution if I force myself to write something about nothing when there really isn't anything to write about!

Maybe, I would start to explain the meaning of nothing, but then I surely would finish in a philosophical sense. So, it might be just dificult.

Ahh..pulling something out from nothing.My usual methods include research, creativity and advice from my fellow writers. A bit hard is you're writing soemtihng in another industry and material is regarded as somewhat an expert insight or quality.

Writing about nothing... Well, that's often what we have to do in english classes isn't it! I usually would just BS something and make it sound like I was writing about something deep and profound :P
