What To Write About As A Beginner

If you are writing something that has already been written, then the obvious question is — what’s the point …

However, one can assume that the most of the content we all read and enjoy is based on ideas that have been said before in one form or another.
So if so, one should make the distinction of what to write about out of considerations that are more comprehensive.

It’s not a question of what about, but when!

If there is no innovation in what you write, then probably your knowledge is still in the process of formation.

Beginner writers sometimes feel the need to start writing when they have innovative ideas, yet those ideas need to be formulated into an outline, or a uniform style of thinking, or in other words — a new language.

Not only that, in most cases the same ideas need to go through a kind of polishing so that the general public can absorb them at first glance.

The pleasure of reading

Two authors can write about the same ideas but sometimes as a reader you can get the pleasure of reading from just one of them. — The emphasis is in a different place, the style is different, and the language is different.

It follows that if you feel like the things you say have a certain novelty in them and they can be said to a wide audience, then it’s time to start writing a book, blog, etc.
