What are your passions? What is it that makes you happy and what do you love to do?
- These things, your passions, may lead you to writing ideas, topics, and your niche.
What do you do for your day job? This might give you an expertise and inside look which will give you the perfect slant for articles or a book. Think about it. Who can write about what you love better than you can? And if you love something, chances are that someone else will love it too.
I love pediatric critical care nursing, I love children, but I don't always want to write about sickness and death. I also love quilts, fabric, and learning about women in early America. I also want kids to love the same things. What about a nonfiction piece about quilts in early America? Women in history? Fabrics from the Civil War Era? Teaching younger readers how to quilt?
See what I mean, once you find and identify your passions, the story ideas will flow. Try it. Make a list of 10 things you really like or want to know more about. Now for each of those things, list two topic ideas for articles that you may write if you just did some quick research.
Go forth and write. See you on the page.
