Getting Started in Writing Month Part One; “Determine your Angle of Writing”

As a writer, there are plenty of things you can do, poetry, freelance, novel writing, short story writing, etc. Writing has a lot of different angles. It’s all about what you know and what feels right for you.

Before you get into writing, you need to determine what you want to write. One person may like being a professional business writer. That person would write professionally for a company. Their duties may include, writing web content, writing the companies newsletter, writing reports etc. If this is something that interest you, your angle of writing would be business writing. Someone else may like short story writing.  It all comes down to what you like and what feels right to you.

I am a writer. I enjoy writing poetry and novels. I also enjoy inspirational writings, articles and essays. This is my angle of writing. I do not have any interest in business writing. So I would not pursue a career in writing professionally for a company. So before you move any further, you need to decide what type of writing you will go into.

There are plenty of resources to help you find the type of writing you are interested in getting into. My favorite resource besides the internet is the library. It’s free! I love books. I love getting boos and reading them no matter what they are about. So go to your local library and look up books on writing; the different types of writing.

You can also use the internet if you like. You can Google writing or different types of writing. See what interests you.

Determining your angle of writing is very important. You don’t want to get into something that later bores you. You also don’t want to get into a writing that someone else is doing because they love it. You have to do what you love and will fulfill your need and desire to write!
