What Do You Want to Write? (Part 1 of 5)

As we move into writing seriously, we need to answer that question for ourselves. Some individuals know exactly what they want to see in print and don’t deviate or try anything new.

But if you’re like I was when I started, I wanted to write on nine or ten different topics.

If you’re not sure (or even if you are, consider a few suggestions).

First, examine your own areas of interest. What do you enjoy reading? That can be a tricky question because some of us read widely. I read fiction and nonfiction. I’m immensely curious about many things—like many writers. That may not give you an answer, but it causes you to ponder.

Second, look at your heart. Your passion. What topics or genres stir you when you think about writing? That may not be the ultimate answer, but it’s a good place to start.

To figure out what you want to write,
begin by examining your passion.
