I believe that I am good at expressing things specially in writing. I like to write.

I have seen on this site that people usually have stories in their mind but don't know how to write it! My problem is that I can describe something very well, but I don't have the imagination to "create" stories.

What are my options for writing as a hobby?

    Your favorited answer is about finding inspiration for creating stories. I think the rest of us thought you were asking about what to write without creating stories. Should this question be reworded to clarify? – Ken Mohnkern Sep 6 '16 at 0:13

Ghost writing? You can even make money from it. Editing would also be good for you I think. Also journalism, biography novels, travel stories, memoirs. For example you can create a blog and include stories of places you have visited. Just an example.

    Oh and reviews. For example restaurant reviews, food reviews, food recipes. – Teddy Markov Aug 31 '16 at 12:54

If you can describe things well then don't worry about not being able to create story. Every writer is different in his/her style. Once you start writing you can move into different genres of it. For you at this phase, you can do the following:

  1. Travel writing
  2. Content and technical writing
  3. Blogs - you can write any genre of blogs
  4. Fashion Blogger - if interest in fashion

These are just some options. You could pursue any of them and with time you can earn a living through this. But initially, I would suggest not to think more about money but think about how well you can describe things, places, etc.

Hope this helps

“Where do you get your inspiration?”

This is an often hated, and feared, Q author’s get. Their ability to generate good ideas at the drop of a pin seems unnatural and exceptional to non-writers. They appear like inspired and gifted individuals for whom muses dance.

A couple years ago I started developing a story mostly based on my life. After a few weeks of expending on the novel, all these other ideas started coming to me.

As time went by, I had more and more ideas, aand I now have a dozen notebooks full of books projects.

My point is that it seems to me that inspiration is like a muscle, the more you exercise it, the bigger it gets.

So, devote some time to try to write a story, any story, and soon you will start hearing the soft echos of divine murmurs.

Poetry?

I write 100-word pieces of fiction and it's sometimes tricky to get "story" into so few words. It's much easier to make them into little scenes or observations or even tiny essays. I don't write poetry, but these little things sometimes feel like it.
