Writing (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
You may have noticed that I am posting questions for you to answer, coming after some goal setting and motivational posts. This is in an effort to get you thinking.
Thinking about what?
What you want to be doing. You might already be blogging on a nonfiction basis, but I want you to think about expanding your horizons.
Today, I want you to think about your specialty (or specialties!). For instance, I mainly write lifestyle pieces: Cooking, gardening, parenting, frugality, etc. I also write career pieces, and I love fiction.
What about you? Do you prefer to write about sports? Business? Economics? Politics?
Do you blog about your specialty? If so, what can you add to the blog to help others begin their career, or to offer some entertainment for your readers?
Here are some suggestions to get you started?
- Special Reports
- Article Collections
Sit down with a pen and paper, brainstorm some ideas, and get cracking! Spice up your writing career a little.

How are you doing with your first week of tasks for the 4 Week Write Your Own E-Book Challenge? It can be both fun and time consuming, I know. It may also make you nervous. Don’t worry about that, though. You are doing just fine.
Have you finished your beginning brainstorming tasks? I’ll bet you had fun with that. I always do.
You should have organized the needed pages in your notebook according to topic now, and have been working on more brainstorming techniques to finish the subtopic lists for each topic. The subtopic brainstorming activity can take time, and you may not be finished yet. This is fine. You have the weekend to finish up. The next challenge step will not be posted until Monday.
Remember to number the subtopics in the order in which you wish to mention them.
