Immortality is an issue which has intrigued humans for millenia. It can be a fascinating topic for discussion. As a starting point, before you begin writing, you might try making a list of pros and cons. For instance: Pro - You'd have time to see the all the wonders of the world. Con - If you had relationships with people who weren't immortal, you'd continually be losing people you were close to. Pro - You could do more exciting things if you didn't have to fear death. Con - Life can be hard; you might just get tired of the grind and have no way out. After you make your list, it should be easier to decide whether you'd choose immortality yourself.

Hollywood has always been intrigued by this question and there are many movies in which the main character cannot die: "Highlander"; virtually any vampire movie; and, there's a new one coming out called "The Fountain" which uses that theme. If you have time, you might watch some of these for inspiration. As I recall, the Kirsten Dunst character in "Interview with the Vampire" was not happy that she had been made a vampire when she was still a child, because she would never get to know what it was like to grow up. That's another issue you could touch on: at what age would you stop becoming older?

I hope these ideas have given you a place to start. Good luck!
