A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
I’m going to be honest with you. Writing good content is hard. Anyone who tells you otherwise is delusional. My own work, both fiction and nonfiction, uses up a good chunk of my creative energy already, so unless a request involves a subject or a style that I find particularly compelling, I’m not likely to accept it.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bother asking. I like to do interviews and profiles, and I can occasionally be reeled in by a juicy tech or health topic. Send me your request, and I promise I’ll consider it.
The upshot is that you might have to do the really hard work of writing a first draft. Once you’ve done that, I’ll more than likely be happy to help you shape it up.
What’s the saying? “Those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach.” So be it.
