@HomeAnne O’Connell, author of @home in Dubai: Getting connected online and on the ground (Summertime Publishing, 2011) is the 504th author to be interviewed by Morgen Bailey on the latter’s writing-related blog, morgenbailey.wordpress.com. In the interview, Anne writes, “I think the future is very bright for writers.  There are a multitude of platforms, traditional and new age that will always need quality content and original thought.  More and more writers are working remotely so there are no geographic boundaries anymore either.  With the explosion of self-publishing options, it’s even more encouraging.”

Here’s another excerpt from the interview:

Morgen: … How do you decide what to write about?

Anne: Most of the time my clients dictate what I’m going to write about. [Anne has a PR background and is a freelance copywriter] Because my expertise was in corporate communications, marketing and PR I’m drawn to clients who have a need in those areas.  What I write is determined by their target market, what needs to be communicated and the vehicle by which the message will be delivered.  For my own writing (my blog or online articles) I like to write about trends in business communications or simply what I experience going on in the world around me.  I love to travel so I balance the business writing with things that are a little more on the lifestyle side.
