Knowing What to Write: A Quickie

Updated on June 16, 2013

I find it difficult to find things to write about. It doesn't get any easier as time moves along. I look around at my world around me and there just doesn't seem to be anything to write about.

WRONG! The world around you is many open books just waiting for the words to be placed on paper. As I sit in my house, I look in front of me and see my dog. I bet I can write many stories on her and people would be interested. She is an American Eskimo Poodle Mix and gets into many troubles, but more on that later. Another subject might be your favorite hobby that you find yourself doing daily or weekly. There are millions of people cruising the internet thinking the same things. Just start writing.

Even if you have projects around the house that need your attention, put it down on paper with step by step instructions on how you do it. Again, many people are out there that don't know where to begin on projects. For instance, I had to do some wiring in my new home and I searched the internet to figure out what to do. To my success there was multiple articles to help. This is the age of DIYers. They will scower the internet to find out how to do things on their own for that self accomplishment or to save money.

Write what shows you like and why. If something interesting happened at work, tell the story for many to read. Life is full of stories just waiting to be told.

I hope you weren't looking for a list when reading this article, because that list can go on and on. I have many ideas in my head. It's not that I don't know what to write about, I just can't find the time. I find myself making notes on my iPhone just so I remember at a later time.

Good luck to you in your endeavers and I look forward to reading your articles.

      I usually skip small hubs, but yours has a good point. Advice I should follow. I am always doing something, but wishing I could write more, especially hubs. Writing down what I'm doing to go into a hub would be a good start.
