Welcome to class 8th. You no longer have to go to school in shorts. Different assembly grounds, the highest section of middle school. Feels good to be all grown up, doesn’t it?
Being 13-14 years of age, you are pretty active. Both due to your physical and psychological changes in the body. Pretty natural, happens to everyone. It is a growing stage, so enjoy it.
Now talking about studies, you will get to study a lot of interesting things from your subjects. But you found interest in English.
The chapters and the story are so gripping for you, that all you want to do is finish the assignment your teacher gave you as soon as you go home.
With the story complete in your mind, you can now frame the best answers to the questions in your NCERT textbook. You are not about any subject but this is the one you will surely ace in your finals.
Soon you begin to realize that it is not just the story, but grammar as well. You enjoy writing articles and stories in your exams. Those lengthy English exams seem like a whole lot of fun.
So you are a content writer now, right?
Yes or no. Okay, still unsure about the content writing?
Who is a content writer?
A good technical definition would amount to someone writing for a specific audience at a professional level to earn an income out of it. But not everything is done for money, some is merely done out of interest.
Writing is one form of content creation. The word content writing specifies it. There are so many content creators across various online platforms with a huge fan following.
Like Brave Wilderness and Bright Side. Providing engaging and creative content has allowed them to turn the heads of millions to them.
It is not just the writing that amounts to it. But it is also about how to deliver the content so that the audience relates to it. As in the end that is the goal, to capture an audience for a purpose.

But you can contribute to this interest of yours at your own level. Keep writing for yourself. Record your day in the form of a journal. Take part in essay writing competitions and other things.
