Easy one..... I write for me, I am not a back scratcher, yet I have been known to beat a point to death.
Honerslty anyone who wants to read.
Myself. As a much younger man, I had vision and purpose, a message to convey to the masses. I slept with tablets and pens under my pillow. Given the choice of whether to wipe my ass with the last bit of toilet paper or use it to write a thought lest I lose it, ink was the answer. Vision and purpose set aside, I write because it is that which I must do. Like breathing, it means to me that I am living. If I don't, I'm not.
Myself, it makes me feel better when I am writing.
Myself and CC. The reader is third in line unfortunately but if I and CC don't get into the story and 'see' it then no one else will either. That's a cop out I suppose. Way deep down I write for that feeling of Euphoria I spoke of when the writing's coming fast and furious the whole of the world ceases to exist outside of The Zone. Even the tapping of the keys and the glowing monitor aren't really there anymore. I write for that 'high'.
Hey, I'm honest. I get points for that, right?
I guess I have to say myself, although I hope others would benefit from my writings.
I write for me. Almost always. I'm a very critical audience and if I can satisfy me then others will like my writing as well. And even if nobody likes it, or even reads it, it's still something that I like for me. If I can't enjoy the story then I can't expect anyone else to.
My reader. I want to shine a light that welcomes a friend into my world.
for that little excited person inside me. my number one cheerleader and my equally constructive critic. i write for the love of it.
An intelligent adult reader with broad interests.
Deep down inside? probably to get s.
There may have been a time when I had the misconception about writing for the public because someone else could benefit from knowing they are not going through a particular experience alone. That is true to some extent. At a deeper level, I benefit as well. It is a journey of transformation for me.
A kindred spirit who is as convinced as I am that this tale must be told.
Myself! I think I am funny. (Oh, shut up.)
I guess I have to admit, me. However, since I can't stop craving readers, I try to write what I would like to read, and hope there's somebody out there who might enjoy it and "get it."
