Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright May 2015. http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/shannonbuck

Many people like to write for a cause. Perhaps you’re a foodie who wants to help people with little money to eat healthier. Maybe you blog about animal rights. Or perhaps you want to write about environmental concerns.

If the latter is the case, discuss what you know about environmentalism. It has a rather large scope, so there will be plenty of opportunities to help through writing.

If you’re not sure about a specific area, learning is a great way to spark ideas for a writing career. You might also interview experts in the different areas of this or another topic, and build a blog around your research and studies.

Quote

“Raising awareness on the most pressing environmental issues of our time is more important than ever.” ~ Leonardo DiCaprio
