the other thread sparked this thought in my mind and I wondered what others experience/opinion might be. My own experience, I've never had a problem writing about things I might not find personally interesting. Maybe that stems from my background as a freelance writer, where I wrote about anything and everything, from ad agency work to magazine articles to technical writing. I feel I always learn something new when I undertake a project and it only enhances my writing skills to find something interesting in a story that might otherwise be dull. Insofar as screenwriting goes, a friend/mentor suggested I write a story about a particular true crime. I'm not really excited by true crime, but took his advice and wrote it, worked very hard on it. Now I have a producer potentially interested, which could lead to other doors opening. I think if one is passionate about the craft of writing in and of itself, and is intent on learning and furthering their knowledge, one can write about nearly any topic. Thoughts?
