I write children's books for kids and their parents. I think it is important children read and learn to read. The use their imaginations and reading unlocks their minds. Parents need to read to their kids, it provides a bonding experience.
Now trying to write romance, I write for myself, as selfish as this is. I don't know if it will go anywhere. I just like to do it.
When I first started I convinced myself it was for me, and me only.
Now, later, it's to share a created world with others that impacts on many.
A lot of it, I write for me. Because I need to write it, or because it needs to be said. If I'm write about something it's in the hopes that people will read it, and kind of have that epiphany moment where it's as if the lightbulb goes on in their head and whatever I'm talking about for any given story, relates somehow to their own lives.
Myself because I enjoy it. As Stephenie Meyer said, "Write for the joy of writing and don't worry about the rest of it"
Myself. I write because if I don't, my over active imagination will drive me insane.
I write for myself. Only now, on the verge of becoming a published author, I should start writing for a larger audience, my readers.
Honestly, I think I write because my life would be way to boring if I spent the time just sitting on my couch. That plus my brain pretty much never shuts off and I'm thinking of random movies, movie quotes, and movie ideas.
My creative work is written for me but I love it when other people read the work and enjoy it.
When I'm working on copy then that's always created to make the client happy.
I'm driven to write by how I felt growing up, the traumas I endured, and how that made me feel. I want to write for all the young adults feeling lost, depressed, alone -- growing up is hard sometimes, and for many teens, they are forced to grow up earlier than they should. Writing is cathartic. I deal with my own past through writing and it serves as a form of therapy.
for my own gratification, for me, i dont do it to impress anyone else, its something i have to do for myself.
I try to write for people seeking information about how to use their Mac computer, software, and related web technology.
I write for my imaginary friends.
I write for those who are the subject of my current work, those who are facing a particular challenge and who do not have the voice to be heard.
The reader or the audience, whatever comes first. But I will only ever write something that I would like to watch, read or listen to. I'm very fussy when it comes to things I will waste my time on, after all, time is meant to be spent working in a job you kind of enjoy to pay the bills.
Future human race.
