I write because I have to. I don't have a choice. It's like love. When you love someone it's a discovery. It's the same with writing. My writing affects others. I write to share and so others can read.
I write for others. I write to entertain. To have someone read what you have written and enjoy it...words can not describe that feeling. I am addicted to that feeling.
I most definitely write for the part of me that believes I'm here for a purpose other than to make money, start a family, provide for that family, and die. While reproduction is great, I feel as though there is something within me that can move or change something else on this rock for the better.
I write also for the part of me that believes the pen is mightier than the sword. Writing is an outward expression for me. It's not directed at anyone but the page, and you can't hurt the page's feelings. If I yelled "Fuck you" to the person who cut me off in traffic in a moment of instant anger, I might not realize that this person only did that in a split second reaction to another car cutting them off. If I take my time with emotions, I'm able to think rationally, and write down on paper later on what I was feeling. It also helps me think about that other person that cut me off. Often times my stories come from them. I enjoy thinking about their lives, and imagining the daily series of events that may have lead to that exact moment when I wanted to rage in expletives in their direction.
I write for someone who has the same sense of humor and will understand the references I use.
Myself, but I always hope my stories are pleasing to God, too, since He's the one who gave me the gift in the first place.
The list: God, my family, my friends, myself, other people.
I write for everyone especially for my fellow countrymen. I'm proud to be a Filipino!
It depends. My personal journal I've written for myself and my "future" husband. My book, I wrote for God addressing the various issues and people who go through them. For my blog, I'm writing for people as well. It really depends the type of writing and the depth of it too.
Honestly? To please myself. I've got to have that emotion at the computer flowing, either anger, hilarity or the need, like blue balls, to get something out of my mental nuts. As it were. Otherwise, I bore even myself.
I write for me, but I hope what I write will speak to others.
I write for me. I edit for the editor. I polish for the reader.
For an invisible reader, who is very important for me.
Every story I've every written has been for somebody I know. I'm surrounded by inspiring and amazing people.
Deep down inside I write for one person, myself. Writing is one of my outlets it is me. So even if I am the onlyone that ever reads it, that is ok with me.
