Generalist or Specialist?

General discussions about freelancing.

Carolyn/freebird: I guess being open to writing on general topics makes you more flexible, plus work may be less likely to dry up if you're open to writing across a range of subjects for clients. That's a strength.

I'm a generalist. I write across different subjects from Fashion to Health to the Paranormal and everything in-between. But it's beginning to tire me, to be honest. I'd rather tighten my focus and concentrate on two niches, possibly three.

I am a generalist right now. I do try to pick subjects which interest me. My strong background as a systems analyst means that I do tend to go for that area for my writing. Over time I can understand how many people here seem to move towards specialization. Too narrow a line of specialization wouldn't interest me as I always love to learn new things.
