101 Blog Post Ideas for Writers: Number 4

by - 8:00 PM

One of the reasons that I debated starting this website was because I wasn't sure what I would write about. I was too scared to post excerpts of my current WIP since it's still a rough draft and I didn't want to give anything away. As you can see though, I decided to build the website anyways!

Well, I soon ran into that problem that I knew I would - I don't know what to write about. After reading multiple blogs, and hundreds of blog posts ideas, I finally found something interesting. I stumbled across the tag "101 Blog Post Ideas for Writers" on the No Page Left Blank blog

Once I read a few of them, I realized that they all linked to Julie Jernigan's blog, Julie Writes. There, I saw her post, "101 Blog Post Ideas for Writers - Part 1." I hadn't heard of Julie or her work before, but I have to admit, she had a pretty great list of ideas! So, I decided to participate in the blog tag too!

4. How did you know you wanted to become a writer?
Honestly, I didn't really know that I wanted to be a writer, but I guess I should have known. I remember writing stories in elementary school and I won a couple things here and there, but I never really thought I would find a career in it. Ultimately, I just thought that it was fun :)

It wasn't until 2016 that I actually decided to work on my writing professionally. I had always loved all things creative, especially photography; however, my chronic illnesses changed my career path. So, instead of being behind the camera, I switched to behind my computer. I started a blog and started writing for fun. I finally got the inspiration for my book and I started writing!

A few months later, I now have three fiction novels and one non-fiction novel in progress. I'm between 10-20% done with each and I can't wait to get them published! My teachers had always encouraged my writing, but I didn't think too much of it. Now though, I wish I had listened to them earlier!
