As a freelance writer, you can write about whatever you want to–right?
Well, not if you want to earn a living as a writer. The idea that freelance writers only need to write about interesting topics is mostly a myth.
If you’re a professional writer, you’ll have to write about topics your clients choose. Unless your interests are the exactly the same as what your clients need, you’ll get some dull assignments.
I should know. I’ve covered dull topics myself. Normally, I wouldn’t wade through pages of statistics, read about income taxes, or contracts. But I’ve done it for clients. And I’ve made those dull topics (and others) seem interesting.
There are ways to make a dull topic sizzle. Relax. It’s not as hard as it seems. In this post I share ten techniques to make your posts more interesting.
