I am a writer. I have deliberated for a long time about whether or not to specialize. I had read in writers magazines for quite a while that it is quite a good idea to specialize in a subject or two (or three). However, listening to a friend talk a few times recently about how she is a generalist really got me thinking.
Okay, maybe I have many clips on medical subjects, but I have realized there are so many things I am interested in that I can no longer ignore.
So I have to write about them.
Here are the subjects I would love to write about: Medical (including ADHD, autism and other disabilities, and cancer); Health (including exercise, nutrition, cooking and natural living); Crafting, Collectibles, and Travel; Folklore and Celtic Studies; Literature, Writing and Language.
Some of these subjects overlap. Some don’t. And I think that’s fine with me.
Of course I am willing to write about anything that comes my way. I have even written business profiles for local weekly newspapers. I’ve done copyediting professionally, for a variety of publications and websites.
But mostly, I just have to write.
