I write to entertain. If I make someone laugh, cry, introspect, then I have done my job.
for my future, off course.
JK. Rowling makes me so jealous b'cuz she is so wealth by writing Harry Potter.
i'll do the same thing as her.
writing an unique novel.
I write for the general public, and also for those that need some form of hope or a hero. I also write for my savior, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and saved me several times during my life.
I like to think I write for myself, but I think I write for the people that don't write, but want to. The people that can't find their voice. I write for them, and maybe someday they'll get their voice. I want to inspire people.
I write because I cannot "not write". It is as much a part of my being as breathing.
Me. I write stories that I would want to read.
I write for the sake of telling the yet untold stories of the myriad characters that exist out there. I feel like I'm a conduit of sorts, I guess. Also, I just like to write, so I guess part of it is for my own sake as well.
I write for myself and whoever cares to listen.
Simply write from the heart, and the right audience will appear. One just has to listen to one's intuition and move in the directions to bring those together.
Deep down inside, I write for God and myself.
Myself as a young adult. I read book after book after book searching for a meaty story, something that would fill me up after I finished the last page and quell that hunger inside of me to feel understood and maybe even a little guided. We want guidance--all of us do--but we often don't know how to ask or what we need guidance for. That's why I think YA lit is so pivotal and important because of it's power to shape such young minds.
It makes me crazy when books are just stories without any real substance. They're fun while they last, but they leave you strangely empty when they're over. I keep thinking of Twilight--a totally lovely read and the best of the series, I think, but still missed the mark. It got to the root of that first love and infatuation, but it didn't go any farther. That's fine and obviously it totally feeds a need (and gets lots of reluctant readers to read their hearts out), but I think a book should do just a bit more. Feed a need and push their minds to be something just a bit more, to think a bit more and look a bit more carefully at the world around them and hopefully, to feel understood.
My inner well being...
