I am a teenage girl, attending highschool and trying to keep up with writing and eventually hope to make a decent income from it. At the moment I am having a little dilema.. dont have any good ideas on things to write about. Does anyone have any suggesstions for me? What kinds of things do you write about? Or where does your writing insperations come from?

Hi SydneyJ! I also have friends in triond who are students but are active in writing. They would always write anything about what's happening in their studies like some experiences with their classmates and professors. They even made some articles about their topics in a certain subject and it really works. If you happen to have an assignment about researching a certain topic in school,you can also write it down as an article. You can also submit poems if you are good at it or if yoou're good in cooking,you can submit recipes. If you happen to have jokes,you can still make an article about it,sometimes jokes are fun to read!

Be totally original and don't follow in other people's footsteps. Think of things you are interested in and freewrite. Don't worry about words and spelling. Write on software that helps you with spelling and grammar, but be aware that software isn't exactly perfect. Some software that doesn't cost nothing that works on mac os, windows and linux is abiword. It's the equivalent of msword and you can get plugins that help with grammar, spelling and other things. Research things you are interested in. If you are good at writing fiction, pick genres you are interested in. Romance novelists aren't perfect writers, but they satisfy their pleasures. There are contemporary writers that write about their current events. They pick media they are more familiar with and take it a step further by pinpointing what interests them the most about the particular topic. Specifics draws attention to one particular subject and that's what makes it interesting. I hope this helps! :)

Hi SdyneyJ, why dont you just upload your test question and answers or your assignment as an article? For example, the question that you score very well in the last test become the introduction. Then your answer becomes the body of the article. Other students who are studying the topic will want to read from your content. Just make sure that you lengthen the answer to become an article length content.

The general suggestion would be to write on something you are well versed in, or based on personal experience. Bear in mind that any topic can be approached in more than one way. The subject of gymnastics for example can be broken into several article like (1) An Overview of gymnastics, (2) Techniques in gymnastics. (3) Diet of a gymnast. (4) Mental preparation. (5) Life of a gymnast.

Is there any particular message you'd like for the world to know or remember? Anything that really bothers you? You can use your writing to illustrate importance of certain messages or illustrate the ridiculousness of some situations. Weave some of these things into whatever your subject matter; but do it subtly ;)

Hey there your inspiration to writing comes from things you enjoy,like. what's your passion? you can write about anything you want, but what people like to hear is helpful articles. Examples if your into a sport, you can write about that. If you love math: write about that and why. I recommend you to write about things you like so you won't give up fast.
