Myself, my daughter, and my wife. I have dreams of being as hugely popular and well-loved as Neil Gaiman, but that's far, far away...
I write for you and I write for me. The magic of words, the beauty of a story, the message from a feature always has answers and happiness.
To keep the little guy within my head happy. He really brings me down if I'm not creating.
Since I haven't made any money out of it, the answer would have to be "me".
I think myself... and my imagined public. I've been writing since before I can remember even writing. I think I just assumed that since books existed, everyone wrote them. To be honest, I don't even question why I write, I just do it. To stop now would be worse than quitting smoking or losing a limb. It would be the same as ceasing to eat real food and just getting all your nutrients from Soylent Green. Yes. It would be exactly the same as that.
For my ancestors who lived their lives in quiet dignity. Most came to the United States unable to read or write, and their example has always been significant to me.
Mainly for me! But I want to leave my family especially my nieces, nephews and great nieced and nephews and on down the line something to remember me by for years and years to come.
I'd like to say I write for myself, which is mostly true, but I suppose I write with the hopes of somehow touching someone's life, whether I ever know it or not.
Deep down, I write for myself.
If I didn't write, I think I just might burst.
Myself, but I hope that others who read my work can relate to me through my work. As a writer I feel isolated so even though I write for myself, I also write to reach out to others of like mind.
I write for myself but I have been asked to do the life story of someone else and then I write for that person
I'm not really sure. The reader, one hopes, eventually. Right now, for myself, I guess.
It is inevitable that a writer experiments with emulation and copies the masters. But one day the writer realizes that unless he is writing for himself it is no good.
