Answers for A Professional Writer: How Can Niching Help My Writing Career?

You've heard about niches, right? For those not familiar with them but are in the writing and editing industry, a niche is a specialization on a certain topic.

For a professional writer, especially at the start of their career, all they want is to see their name on the byline.

That was true for me. But I came to a point that I wanted to write more than whatever came my way. How was I going to do that? Sure, I have an impressive education background and a drive to write. But that makes me one out of the mega-millions of individuals who live in this world. What does a professional writer do?

Similar to Rick Lauber, the author of this article I'm about to share with you, I've found my own way to where I wanted to focus my writing for professional writers.

"Finding Your Nonfiction Writing Niche and Understanding Why This Is So Important" might raise a few eyebrows. The title itself focuses on nonfiction. What would it mean for a fiction writer?

If you really think about it, a fiction writer has its own genres of romance, adventure, science fiction, and countless others. Fiction writers found success in selecting a genre and becoming experts at the writer craft. This is a roundabout way of saying that there are niches in fiction.

Therefore, I felt it is appropriate to share this article to offer a new perspective through Lauber's personal story of how he found his niche. He thoughtfully includes tips how to utilize a niche to your benefit as a professional writer.

May you be enlightened in the way of writing.

Until next time, have a wonderful life. <3
