The first thing you’ll need to become a writer is your ‘PORTFOLIO’ because whenever you tell someone that you’re a writer, he/she will ask to show your work. To build a portfolio, you need to sort out 5-6 topics like Health, Technology, Blogging, Fashion, Lifestyle because these niches are popular.
