What are your life experiences and what topic you can write on about for long while?
Good topics fall into few categories but it is most helpful to have some background knowledge in the subject:
A hero's journey - just an everyday human trusted into extraordinary situation where he has to prove his worth through feats of amazing bravery, sacrifice or something.
