I always write for myself. The characters are very personal to me and I have grown to love each one of them as the novel(s) have been written.
"Midnight Omen Deja vu" was written for my grandchildren. The sequel is being written for my children.
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.
