Cause and effect essay topics
can be stimulating.

When reading through cause and effect essay topics, you will find that your cause effect essay writing can come to be stimulated creatively. You do not have to stick to realistic topics that you find are cut and dry. You can explain the 'how' and 'why' of various cause and effect essay topics by being innovative and coming up with new and sometimes not-so-realistic ways of expressing yourself through the causes and/or effects that you come up with.

When doing cause effect essay writing, be sure to make the causes represent the effects well, and vice versa. Here are some cause and effect essay topics to help you get started out on the right track as you begin your own creative writing journey. Keep in mind that these topics do not have to go along with the original themes they may seem to be attached to (for example, explaining how the cowardly lion came to be cowardly can be about any lion, and not necessarily the one from The Wizard of Oz).

The Wizard of Oz
a. Why/How the Wicked Witch of the West became wicked
b. Why/How the cowardly lion became cowardly
c. Why/How flying monkeys gained the ability to fly
d. Why/How the yellow brick road became yellow and not some other color

Disney Movies
a. Why/How Scar got his name (The Lion King)
b. Why/How the Genie was able to live for seemingly an eternity in his lamp (Aladdin)
c. Why/How Ursula lost her looks and became evil (The Little Mermaid)
d. Why/How Peter Pan never grew up and stopped aging at a certain age (Peter Pan)

a. Why/How do birds suddenly appear every time someone is near? ("Close to You" by Burt Bacharach)
Cause and Effect Essay Topics b. Why/How is one character supposed to live without another character? ("How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" sung by Laura Branigan and written/later performed by Michael Bolton)
c. Why do raindrops keep falling on your head? ("Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" written by Burt Bacharach)

For every single topic listed above, do not only look at the causes of each, but at the effects that result from each of those causes you came up with. Then, creatively coalesce those causes and effects into a storytelling or poetic adventure that is invigorated with the creative license you choose to entail within your writing.
