Writing again

I wrote an article for Medium tonight and I’m really proud of how it all came together. I said a bunch of things that I’ve been thinking about for quite a while.

It’s funny, though, because I don’t really have a niche there. I think this is the only time in my 18-year writing career that I can say that. Even more interesting (and I don’t know how to say this without sounding like I’m obnoxiously patting myself on the back) is that it seems like I’m able to be successful in most of the genres I write about.

I admit that this all does make me wonder if there’s still a possibility that I could become a lot more successful as a freelance writer than I have been so far.

Again, I know this sounds incredibly obnoxious, but I do know that I’m a talented writer. I should be, since it’s the career I’ve wanted since I was five years old.

What I don’t know is whether or not my writing will keep being all over the place or if I’ll settle down into just one genre. I really have no idea what a writing career without a genre even looks like. It’s just such a foreign concept compared to the way I’ve always written.

I really like it, though. For the first time in my writing career, I actually feel free (and I feel like my writing is a lot better as a result.)

    1. Thank you so much, Jus! 🥰 It’s funny because I feel more alive when I’m writing than I have in years. I used to feel like this when I initially started writing many years ago, before I started doing it for money. I honestly thought this part of me was gone forever.
