It seems so basic, but the most logical thing to do when you’re looking for something is to have a good idea of what you are looking for.
What is a “writing niche?” You could surf the web for the meaning. But what you read from someone else’s blog is someone else’s definition of the phrase. I could define it here, and that would be my definition. But I am from a different culture. Could my definition be what you are looking for?
The internet is a wonderful thing. It widens our horizons, but it could also make our perspectives narrower. There seems to be so many experts on just about anything. Have a question? Google it and you’ll find the answer. We get answers quickly. The caveat though is that we hardly think for ourselves now. We give away our power, we rely on others to provide us with the answers.
What does “writing niche” mean to you? Define it in your own words. But don’t write down the answer immediately. Think about it, play around with the two words, together and singly. Take your time. Say the words aloud. Whisper them. Think about the words silently in your mind. Take a few seconds in the morning to do some wordplay. A couple more seconds in the afternoon. Just a few seconds. Can you spare that much time?
Play with the words. Write them down if you have time and doodle. You’ll be surprised at how much these little efforts will “loosen” your mind.
After a while – a few days or so – the definition may come floating by, or you may “hear” the voice of your muse while you’re brushing your teeth or washing the dishes. When that happens, listen or watch. And then write down what “writing niche” means to you. Whatever it is, you can be sure it’s a definition that resonates with you.
