Myself - for the most part I hope my family don't read my stuff! Not worried about anyone else reading it. Funny thing is that in secondary school writing compositions was a nightmare for me - mine were very childish so while I was what you would call "well-read" I couldn't do honours english because I could not interpret literature and definitely would not let anyone inside my head through writing compositions! Guess I have "evolved"!
I write for myself primarily, even when itís something I wouldnít read (like a match preview for a team I donít support). I write for the various aspects of myself and hope that Iím an ordinary enough person for it to appeal to somebody else whilst not so ordinary as to be boring. I want others to relate to my work but find something new there as well.
Deep down inside I write because I enjoy it, and I get paid to do what I love!
I write first of all for me, but not to the point where I run the risk of alienating people. I just want to engage people, make them laugh, cry, throw punches, argue, anything. Any reaction is good when you're writing. So, hopefully without sounding really pretentious, I write for anyone who reads stuff and who wants to engage with it.
On the inside, for myself, to try and put form and substance to my imaginings. Writers write because they have stories inside them, trying to claw their way out, and it can be painful to try and drive them back. Better to let them out and show them off to others.
On the outside, I struck up an email conversation with one of my online fans, and now he's my beta reader. My writing is now tailored to him as my primary audience. Someday, when I have a chance, maybe I'll even meet him in person.
Everyone. I try to keep as much mass appeal as I can. And I'm very considerate of certain members of my audience that might take offense to something. I'm not politically correct. But I won't purposely insult anyone.
The pen is mightier than the sword. And it's not what you say, but indeed, how you say it.
I write because I love to write, and I feel I have something to share with everyone else.
I write for myslef, in hopes that someone will find common ground in my thoughts and characters.
Me, I suppose. My family and friends.
For myself. The thought that anyone else would want to read something I have written surprises me!
I write because I am.
I'm a very selfish writer. I always write for myself.
I'm writing for myself. I just want to tell people what I feel like and I often come to terms with my experiences. When I'm angry I'm writing, when I'm sad I'm writing and when I'm happy I'm writing.
