Write What You Love and Love What You Write

Write What You Love, and Love What You Write

You’re passion and excitement for the subjects you write about shows in every sentence you create and every word you choose. If you’re not interested and excited about your subject, then your readers won’t be either.

There are hundreds of genres and sub-genres in the world of writing. Make a list of all the subjects that you’re passionate about, and all the things that interest you. Find your niche. Connect with people online-google searches, writing groups, twitter…Look for publications, e-zines, newsletters or any other outlet that may be interested in buying or publishing your work. If it interests you, then there are others that are also interested in it too.

Writing is hard work, as we’ve all discovered by this point. You have to put in the time and do the work if you want to create good copy. Think about what you want to say, research it, plan it out, write it down, then rewrite it as many times as necessary to make it exactly the way you want. Choose your words, your sentence length and structure carefully. Read it out loud.

I compare writing to art frequently. We as writers are artists. We create works of art with words. If a painter paints something they have no passion for, it will be flat and uninspired. The same is true for a writer. Write about what you care about, and you will create interesting and insightful works that you will be proud of.
