I get this question quite a bit when people find out that I write.
“What do you write about?”
The short answer: A little bit of everything.
Or: Whatever needs to be written.
The long answer is more involved. The topic areas I cover (for nonfiction) are creativity, social media, and disability/diabetes. Writing about planning falls under creativity because it can help make room for more creativity in our lives.
When it comes to fiction, I write romance, fantasy, and young adult. Topics vary from project to project.
I also write articles, short stories, and poems. One of my personal projects this year is a daily haiku. You can follow that on my Instagram.
That’s not exactly the full answer, but it’s a good start when it comes to what I write.
My question for you is: What do you prefer to write? If you’re not a writer, what do you prefer to read?
Growing up, I wanted to write fantasy and science fiction for a living, but things happened and I ended up writing code instead. Right now, I’m taking a baby-related hiatus from programming, and finally worked up the courage to write again. I only have two blog posts of slice-of-life stuff so far, but the whole “courage” thing is a recent development, coming on the heels of years of self-doubt. Let’s just say it’s work in progress.
I have dreams of what I want to write – short stories, picture books and kids books (all ages), non-fiction are among the first priorities for me. As of now, writing stuff on my blog is what I do mainly (which includes poetry)..
love the haiku a day project 🙂 will check it out
Most of my Amazon books are nonfiction, about hygge. But I have written romance as well. My dream is to write more Christmas romances, but I will probably have to take a class first to improve my writing. I read romance novels, and for non-fiction, mostly things that are spiritual or magical.
Classes are good, but the best way to improve your writing is to write, write, and write some more and read as much as you write, if not more.
