As a freelance writer for articles on the web and magazines, I have at times written articles on topics I did not really care about, and they were some of the most difficult things I’ve ever written.
In his book, “Write is a Verb”, successful author Bill O’Hanlon says:
“At times I have been tempted to write for money, or because someone else had a good idea that I though I could write. It’s always been a mistake. I lose energy somewhere down the line, if I finish it at all, have to drag myself kicking and screaming to the finish line.”
So, have you always written about something you care for? Have there been times when you made yourself write stuff that did not really interest you?
