Finding Your Writing Niche

Hey everyone, thanks for coming. So what is a niche in writing? It can be both style and genre at least to me. Your style over the years of writing can change, with situations and scenarios. Genres it depends on you, do you like romance? Mystery? Crimes? Fantasy? You can write multiple genres if you like. Some say it is best to stick to one genre, but to me a single genre unless you are in love with that particular topic it can become bland. For myself I write in a minimum of three genres to keep my interest going in all of them.

If you are completely new to wanting to start a writing hobby and you haven’t done much reading over the years, you should pick a variety of books out and read. See what genres call to you the most. What you find the most passion and interest in, to begin your own writing adventure. If you have a unique niche you want to write it, go for it. It doesn’t have to be a regular genre, if you have a interest in business go ahead and jot out a book on that topic. Now and then some people luck out and hit a special market in book sales and make decent money. You don’t have to follow the crowd to find your own style and what to write about. Decide for yourself and what you want to do and how far you want to take your hobby in the future.

If you find a crazy new concept that you’ve never read about before go on and write it, it might not zoom to the moon in sales but if you stick to that niche you might get popular on it eventually if that is what you enjoy doing. Now back to writing styles, as I said our sentence structure and word weaving can change over the years or even months. Some writers don’t completely perfect a style for ten years, there is things that can constantly influence how you write and word things. Our environments we live in have a lot impact on our emotional side which impacts how our brain decides to relay our thoughts into the physical world. Such as if you are in toxic relationship that is likely causing depression and forcing you down a move negative path, there is a good chance that will reflect in your words and the whole structure of a writing project. Like if you write a happy more up beat romance comedy six months ago and then you got into the toxic situation your whole style can change and cause that negativity to seep into your work. Which isn’t always a bad thing, because some writers are naturally prone to darker moments in life such as Edgar Allan Poe.

Not that i am saying go find a toxic moment to be able to write a good horror story but just that your moods influence your style. Your environment and life style can reflection in your books , so be careful in that aspect if you want to stick to a steady more level pattern in your career. Anyway take care I am done blogging on here for the day. Hope to see you around.
