In other words, you’re curious about the subject.You already know much. But there’s also much more you would like to know.It’s not enough that you like something. You need to be super excited about sharing it with others. You may like eating but may not be excited talking or writing about it.
Curiosity is the Guaranteed to Produce Writing
So, trick is to write about topics you’re curious about.
I’m curious about many things. But lately, after starting to write for the web, I have an inclination to find out more about self-publishing digital books.So, here are some questions that often play in my mind.
- Can I earn a full-time income self-publishing digital books?
- What’s the fastest way for your eBooks to reach your target audience?
- What systems do prolific eBook writers use?
- What techniques can eBook writers learn from pulp writers of the 50s to write faster?
Each of this topic could be turned into a whole book.

As I’m curious about these subjects, I’ll actively look for answers to these questions. The answers will pose more questions and I’ll be diving deeper. The deeper I dive the more ‘pearls’ I’ll be bringing up which I can then later share with readers.
So, it’s pertinent to pin down what you’re curious about which will lead you to writing extensively about it.
It’s not about what you know. If you’ve been working as a storekeeper for the past twenty-five years and you don’t talk about it although you know a lot about it, it means you’re not curious about about your job. No curiosity means no excitement.
So, in order to write faster, list down the topics you’re curious about.Write down all the questions you would love to have answered, no matter how silly they sound.
Then go all out to find the answers.
You will find that it will easier and more fun to share what you’re curious about with readers who share the same curiosity.
So, focus on what you’re curious about. You’ll be on the road to writing faster.
