How to Find Your Writing Niche

When I set up this blog two and a half years ago, there were many questions in my mind about writing. I used this blog to help me answer those questions.

Many years ago I worked briefly  – for three years – as a feature writer for the magazines published by a huge publishing conglomerate in Hong Kong.  As a feature writer, I wrote about everything under the sun but I tended to lean more on conservation and culture.

I gave up that writing career to hearken to a call to help other people heal. But the love for writing kept knocking on my door and finally, after 8 years of working as an energy therapist,I decided to to find time to do some writing. I ventured into content writing and blogging.

Blogging has enabled me to clarify and resolve many writing issues and answer many of the questions that lingered in my mind. I was never educated as a writer – I studied political science – and I didn’t know there was such a thing as a “writing niche” until I began to blog.

I believe strongly in the concept of giving back and so, in the spirit of making my return, I will begin a series of blog posts on how to find your writing niche.

I will post about it every Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fair warning: I do not believe in the quick and easy way. That’s why I felt sure I found my niche only after two and a half years of blogging. But don’t worry, the series won’t run that long. What I’m saying is, I can’t offer you quick and easy ways. Certainly no “top ten ways to find your niche.”

I will show you the way I found my niche. Easy, yes, quick, no. It is a meandering path that will offer you many opportunities to explore the writing life, carve one for yourself and then find your ” writing center.”

The posts will be short…and Zen-like, because I have embraced the Zen life. And it will start July 9, 2015.

Let’s go!
