When becoming an English major this is the career that most people think you will go into. For some, however, it is! Writing can be a very successful career for those who are educated, talented, and have a passion for the industry!
Writers produce original written materials for books, magazines, websites and more. There are often two genres in which a writer works: fiction and non-fiction. They then use their genre in the field of authorship they choose: novels, biographies, plays, and more.
Every writer is different; one might enjoy the hectic atmosphere of a restaurant to write in, while others need a peaceful, quiet room. They can often work whatever hours they choose. When an author gets inspiration there is no time schedule to attend to (other than your deadline)!
If you enjoy writing, whether that it creatively or not, this is a great career for you. Every day you will be doing something you love. Start brainstorming for your work today!
