I Am A Writer (Without A Niche)

I Am A Writer. I write to reach out what my hands cannot reach.~ CrisSp

I am A Writer. I write to reach out what my hands cannot reach.
I am A Writer. I write to reach out what my hands cannot reach. | Source

I am a writer, a passionate writer.

I describe what I feel, take readers to my fantasy,

A poetic fool, my soul clearly sees when I write,

And readers can openly imagine.


I am a writer, a funny writer.

I wrote the wackiest dog hub,

To make you laugh, I joke and play with words,

Readers love the hilarity of what I write.


I am a writer, a storyteller.

It may be hard to start by, I startle at times,

To tell my story without a re-phrase,

So readers’ vision can take place.


I am a writer, a silent speaker.

That silent voice that speaks up,

While readers read out loud,

And in harmony, we sing-along.


I am a writer, a ghostwriter.

Literally, for I sometimes do not exist,

Though I can touch my readers’ heart,

And kill the beast with my powerful words.


I am a Writer, a travel writer.

Sky is the limit and always exploring,

Even if my wings are broken,

I want the readers to enjoy the trip.

Source

I am a writer, a creative writer.

Sensible and comprehensible,

Readers value my artistic integrity,

And I vow to protect my originality.


I am a writer, a play writer.

Not that famous but glamorous,

A hopeful playwright with a wicked script,

Soon audience will flock in theatrical ensembles.


I am a writer, a freelance writer.

Opinionated and engaging,

'Though not everybody will accede,

My opinion matters for readers who matter.


I am a writer, an all around writer.

I am free to choose my words, wise enough to decide,

It may be coarse or crisp, sweet and subtle,

Mostly smooth and straight from the heart.


I Am A Writer (Without A Niche)!


I am a writer with my ubiquitous pen, my words are mightier than swords. ~

      Cris, your poll was interesting because we're told so often to "find a niche". I don't think we need to, particularly in a time when we have access to so many writing outlets and can sell different styles and topics to different publications. The freelance writer has so many options and can follow their writing muse. Of course you said it more eloquently than I, for I am no poet.

      You are a great writer CrisSp. It is only Google and Hubpages that want you to write in a niche to grow your views. There is a theory that if you write 50 hubs on meatballs then you would look like you were a meatball specialist. Someone googling meatballs would stay on all your meatball hubpages and you could go viral with meatballs and make your fortune. Writing in a niche makes money for you and Hubpages but I have a hrad time writing 50 hubs on one subject over and over so that is why I am a Starving Artist.

I like to play around (or I get bored) with various subjects depending on the mood and whatever pays. :) I'm not a big fan of politics though and so I didn't stay long in the community paper where I used to write. They're full of ....well, you know what.

      Poetry is my favorite though and it's a great avenue to express myself without searching and researching for words. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoyed reading it much as I enjoyed writing this hub.

      Cris...This is my intro to you and I don't know how it is I have not discovered you before today. Must be my lucky day. Love this hub as well as your impressive profile.

      I absolutely do not have a "niche" in my writing nor anything else in life,for that matter. Unless of course, we must consider that my mother's maiden name was "Niche".....pronounced Ni-chee........(Americanized when my grandparents stepped off the boat from Italy as "Niccia")........Nice to meet you. Peace, Paula

      I just found this wonderful hub Cris. That poem is awesome, and most writers can relate in some way. Despite most of the advice by experts is that to be successful you must find a niche, I am also a writer without a niche. I don't want my creativity tied down to one genre or type of writing. You are a wonderful writer...never stop.
