So many writers stick to topics that they are comfortable with but after sticking to the topic for a long period of time, their writing may become dull with out them noticing.
It is important for writers to go outside of their comfort zone. A good writing exercise could be:
1. Get outside. Observe things that you pass everyday without actually taking a moment to appreciate them. Notice its’ details. We tend to walk by things everyday with out even taking a second to actually look at it. Everyone is so wrapped up into their phones that the tend to miss the world around them.
2. Talk to strangers. I know, Mom and Dad always told us to “never talk to strangers!” when we were kids, but now that it has been pounded into our brains, as adults, we tend to not talk to anyone we don’t know. By doing this, we are missing out on so many potential new relationships.
Go outside. Talk to different people. Experience different things! By doing this, you will have more to writer about and a better understanding for topics outside of your comfort zone.
