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 wasn’t 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.
I write for those that can identify with the topic that I am writing about. I often find myself writing about my own experiences, triumphs, and pain.
I write for me and for the people who have yet to realize they can follow their dreams.
Truthfully-myself! Hopefully others will enjoy what I right, but deep down inside I must write!
Myself... And for that someone who needs it the most, now. and hope I can make a difference in someone's life by sharing what I know. My experience.
Like most writers, I do write for my own benefit a lot. But the true audience is the world. it might sound cliche but there is no set audience. If I can inspire one person to think differently or learn something new, even explore their world more, it doesn't matter who they are or where they're from. Gay or straight, young or old.
I write for my children. I only have one daughter and son-in-law, but I'm hoping for grandchildren some day! I guess what I really mean is I'm writing for another generation, mostly.
I believe every new generation should be better off than the previous one. We all learn from experience, but Heaven help us if we can only learn that way! We're all better off if we can learn from someone else's experience and share in someone else's understanding. I feel like we need to leave something behind for them, so that they can start out knowing what it took us years to learn.
