So you need something to write about -- something you can give an opinion on?  Well, there's lots of stuff going on in the world right now.

The big news lately is the shooting of the Congresswoman in Arizona.  You could write about your thoughts on that.  What do you think caused it?  How could we prevent things like that from happening again?

You could talk about the new Republican majority in the House of Representatives.  You could talk about what you hope they will be able to do or what you hope the Democrats will stop them from doing.

If you are interested in foreign stuff, you could write about the assassination of that governor in Pakistan.  He was killed because he opposed a law against blasphemy.  You might have an opinion on that.

I hope that helps.

What bugs you? When you're in a store, or driving down the street, or at school, what gets on your nerves? What changes would you like to see in your school or community? These are often good places to start when writing an opinion or editorial.
