Is there a subject you won't write about?

    Is there a subject you won't write about?

  2. Paul Kuehn profile image95
    Paul Kuehnposted 5 years ago

    Yes, there certainly are subjects I won't write about.  They include subjects which will embarrass and hurt a lot of my present colleagues.  I tried doing this before and was labeled as "public enemy number one" and avoided like the plague for a number of months.  I also won't write about the Thai monarchy or Thai politics which is taboo here.  Finally, I would never write about any classified information.

    I don't write about non-subjects. They make no sense. It was funny to watch a show about nothing, but, not so funny to read a story about nothing.

      It doesn't look like you write about anything at all.

    yes. There are many subjects I will not write about. I won't write about subjects in which I have no interest. As has been said, I would not write anything that would hurt or embarrass anyone. I won't write about religion, because I believe it to be a personal matter.

    I do write about things that interest me and that I know something about. I enjoy researching subjects and learning more about topics.

    I think the only subject that is "off the table" for me is one that I do not understand or  don't care to understand.

    I generally avoid sexual topics. They seem to spark a heated debate and I just don't want to get caught up in that type of mess.

    I'd like to think I can write about nay topic given the time to research it.  However, I find my writing is much better when I have an interest in the subject.

      Now those two subjects are daring and dangerous, but under the right circumstances I may give it a try. :0)

    I probably wouldn't write about: medicine, the sciences, academia, technical, car and automotive stuff. I'm not versed in that stuff and even with research, I don't think I'd feel comfortable.

      I know what you mean, Veronica. Unfortunately, I respond to some questions that I am compelled to answer, but do not necessarily want to.

    I won't touch religion with a ten foot pole!

      That's good. Because nowadays you need something more like a twenty-foot pole for safety reasons.

    I won't take a side on politics publicly. Nor will I write about religion. Although doing so could attract a lot of views, it's not worth alienating people.

    Religion...though seeing how I'm not at all afraid to berate various religious concepts and ideals I would probably gets tons of hits from people sharing my hub so they and their friends can argue, and then start arguments with other people who comment on the hub.

    I don't know. I think all subject area's are interesting to learn and write about, but most people are better in some areas then most. So I think it depends on the person who is writing and what are there limits.

    Politics there is no way i'm gonna write anything about politics.I find it complicated and annoying.

    adrienneleighposted 5 years ago

    Simply put - No. Pretty much everything interests me, but I do narrow my focus in order to write somewhat intelligently about subjects I truly care about at the time. As for touchy subjects such as religion, sex, politics, etc. - I haven't written about them yet, but I wouldn't shy away from them. I'm open to criticism and differing opinions. I am not always right, and neither is anyone else. We all form our own opinions based on our life experiences and our personal priorities. My priorities are going to differ from other people's, so why hide? My aim is never to offend but to share. Our differences make us all interesting.

    I would not like to write on politics as I could never understand politics. I have seen people be-fooling others for the sake of their personal gains and politicians are making fool of millions and millions of people. Only a politician can write on this subject as a common man will find it difficult even after thorough research. I have tried autobiographies of big politicians but could not understand the very politics to write about or comment upon.
