Writing as a professional career

Postby rachelparsons » Tue Aug 06, 2019 1:28 pm

Writing is an art, an art to let people know about feelings, emotions, sentiments, ideas and other thoughts with the help of words. This art is said to be a talent that only a few people have. Writers in the past were said to be people who were amazingly talented but this was considered as a time pass or a hobby and not something that could be counted as a professional career path, however, now it is considered to be a professional career as well. The reasons for the same could be different but the biggest reason is the induction of digital mediums and content becoming a vital and integral part of the same. But I am not here to discuss the reason instead I am here for knowing what are career options in this field. I have heard about Wikipedia writers, bloggers, article writers, and such other careers. What amongst these is the greatest option to select in order to have contemplations on creative writing? Is there anyone from the professional field who can guide me about it? Something that could be really useful in making me a professional writer. It would be a great help for sure.

It totally depends on what you want to do with your writing. Do you want to write books or do you want to blog? Do you want to write for ad agencies? There are plenty of career options for writers. And, there are plenty of online writing tools as well that guide new writers through the intricacies of professional writing. Good luck!

Consider journalism. Nowadays, long-form feature stories are in. It's not as clinical as straight news stories. With feature writing, you can be as creative as you want with your delivery, as if you're writing fiction.
