Writing about everything

image: writing cooperative.com

is basically impossible. And don’t “Everything is possible, even the impossible.” me. Newsflash, Mary Poppins isn’t always right. Unfortunately.

Anyway, last night, my mother said something to the effect of “You should write about everything.” Don’t get me wrong, I know where she’s coming from. I’d definitely have a lot more content.

However, I wouldn’t be able to guarantee good, quality content. First of all, my brain would probably break if I were trying to analyze every little thing all the time, and sometimes I just want to watch something for entertainment/writing inspiration value. Is that so bad?

I understand that if I ever get a job as a film critic (which hopefully this blog will lead to at some point), I’m going to have to be analytical about a majority of movies that I see. But it’s not like I’d be going to see EVERY movie, right? There’s definitely more than one film critic in the world.

Rant over. Thanks for reading.

  1. I agree with you 100% about this. My kids try to offer me suggestions of things to write about and topics are so broad or so random. My daughter asked me to write about something and I had to tell her “That’s a great idea but I’m not going to write about that because it’s not something that I really have interest in.” I think you have to have some interest or knowledge about a subject in order to write something that is compelling to others.
