QUESTION
Should I write the chosen topic for an english essay or explain why i dont want to?
My English teachar asked us to write an essay about at least 6 memories about my childhood.Im not sure if I should just try to write it or explain why i dont want to .its not that I had a horrible childhood I juat dont remember most of it.
Additional note :my teacher is kind of strict but is really nice and I think she might not mind if I write enough and theres no grammar mistakes

ANSWER
You forget that this a writing exercise and not looking for factual information of your childhood, which incidentally has nothing to do with her/him.

You can make up any ‘memories’ you like, you can use memories from your parents and Grandparents, making them your own, the teacher is not going to know if these are real or not.

If she starts to quiz you about things, just say that you’d rather not discuss private/personal information in an essay. She should understand and leave it at that.

It’s your writing skills she wants to see.
