Personal stuff, me.
Paying stuff, clients, then me. That's the thing about clients,you usually have to write it the way they want unless you can convince them there's a better option.
I am almost tempted to say for myself, but I know that's not true. I want other people to read it. I want my family and friends to read it. I want people 'out there' to read it. Having someone else read it is part of the magic. If someone says they'll buy it, but not read it -- that is not good enough. That's only part of the deal.
Me. I write for the pleasure of expresing myself and enjoying my creation afterwards, though sharing my experiences is something I love too.
I write for freedom, for liberty, for myself and because I can.
Deep down inside I write for the kids. I also try to write with parents in mind...making sure that they are always included in my stories some how.
Me, I am my toughest critic. If it doesn't interest me I assume no one else will be interested
I write for pleasure, so it is mostly for myself - but I'm always thinking; "Will the children get this? How will they react? Will they enjoy it?)
Not for myself. It's the reader who is going to buy novels. There are themes, however, that I don't care to write about; such as the now fashionable vampire novels. Right now, besides my religious trilogy being published, I am writing a murder mystery, The Castle Club, and also a young adult fanasy, Dream Flight. The murder mystery is in the self edit stage.
Myself (followed by "the world"). It's how I ensure that I don't end up sh*tting anyone (including myself).
I write for myself..... :):)
I write for me, mainly. I write because it's something I just enjoy doing. But, I do enjoy it when my fans give me feedback on my books. So, deep down, I'd say I write for them. I hope they can get something out of my story, whether it be an escape, or a smile.
Myself. I've always written the story I wanted to read, the stories I wished I had when I was a kid and a teenager. The series I'm working on right now I made up when I was in highschool, and it helped me survive teenagehood. Now I want to pass that on to other people.
Throughout my life there was at times some special person in my life I wrote for, but even if there wasnt I wrote anyway. Possibly now my Facebook friends have a lot to do with it.
Me. I write the books I want to read, and often because I want to know how the story ends.
i write because i need to be creative. i was sick for a year and a half and i couldn't write....so i started drawing. i don't really think i have a choice. i write to teach, to help others through difficult times, to amuse, or sometimes just to get something out of my head. i always write for myself. i'm the only one who has to live with the outcome.
