Write Articles - 3 Compelling Reasons To Be A Writer In Retirement
Total Articles: 40
Every day there is more and more publicity about how retirement is going to be different in the future. We are, in general, living longer and healthier lives. Coupling that with many people not having made adequate financial provision, makes for a fascinating situation.
Once we are beyond remaining in our primary occupation, for whatever reason, retirement is going to be so different from what our parents and grandparents experienced.
The vision of the rocking chair, ladies knitting while grandpa settles for pipe and slippers is now reserved for those in their eighties or nineties. Meanwhile, those who are no longer full-time employed are looking at ways to continue as active contributors to society.
What better way could there be than to share some of one's knowledge, wisdom and experiences in written form? This can be done purely for pleasure, or could be taken really seriously and become the basis of a new career.
There are just so many ways in which the sharing of information can be of value. At its simplest, there is always a demand for stories to entertain. For those with the imagination, the possibilities are just about endless. For example, think about how you related to children when they were young. What could you write to interest, entertain or educate young people?
Perhaps you like to keep up with the field in which you previously earned your living? There might well be opportunities to offer help to those ex-colleagues (or even competitors), whom you would like to keep in touch with.
There are probably many local businesses who would like articles written, but do not know where to find properly qualified people to write them. What a great way to keep your mind buzzing and feel you are still needed. You could also find that it can be a nice little earner.
So, you like the idea of writing, but you do not feel you are a story-teller. Neither do you wish to go back to 'working' in the field from which you retired.
The internet can offer you an infinite 'sea of ideas' in which to fish for opportunities. Think about how you have loved to spend your time when you were not working. Is there a hobby, interest or topic on which you can happily converse for hours?
Whatever knowledge and wisdom you accumulated over your lifetime will almost certainly be of interest to who-knows-how-many like-minded people. Why not take the time to find a way of sharing what you know?
Whether it is your imaginative stories, your life's work or your passion, there are so many ways that writing can be of value to you and your readers.
Over the years, many people have told me they believe they have a book in them. The reason given for not getting it written was invariable lack of time.
One of the beautiful things about modern retirement is the possibilities offered by all the time not needing to be wasted in earning a living.
In case you do not yet have the confidence to sit with pen and paper or keyboard, search out some help and guidance to learn the basics. Writing is the best way to learn how to write!
