Myself. I want to read the stories I write, I want to know how they develop.
Basically I write because the stories inside of me have to be written. The initial draft of the story is written for me. By the time I've edited, fine tuned and prepared it for submission to a publisher it has become a novel for my readers.
Me, Me, Me! Plus, anyone else who will give my work the time of day. People who pay to read it will definitely get my attention.
For me. A story I write is ultimately a story I want to read too. A smaller part of the equation would be that I also write for my characters, to tell their story, because each one of them is unique and has something to say.
I also write for the readers, because there's got to be someone out there whose idea of a good story fits mine too!
Well...I guess probably for myself. I see writing as a creative outlet and it is a blast! I really enjoy creating, molding, and shaping a character. I mean...you get to dress them, create where they live, what's happening to them and...perhaps kill them. Wow...such power!
I write for myself. I think we all do and we just hope that the story will resonate for other readers.
I believe that every individual has a gift within them that can be used not just as a skill of sorts but also to vent out their deepest thoughts.If you watch a famous actress or a celebrity designer at work, you will notice that beyond what they have learnt about their profession, what makes them different from the rest is their constant effort to discover themselves and display that side of them that everyone's unaware of.
I definitely write for myself. It is a release, a joy, a challenge all in one. I would write if nobody read a single word. It is part of my very being and something I will do forever.
First and foremost, I write for myself. I am doing something to make myself happy creating something that is completely mine. Hopefully, other people will like it, but I write for myself.
I'd say 50/50 for me and for the readers.
Okay, if I'm truly honest here, I write for myself. I can't seem to stop writing and don't want to. I'm thrilled when others enjoy my worlds.
I write for both, audience and myself. My first priority is to satisfy the kids. I love to see their smiling faces, and see how they get excited over the story and characters. However, how would you achieve all of this, if you didn't put your energy and creativity into a story? So, to me, you also have to satisfy yourself.
ME....I write for me...
The dream is to be an internationally best selling author and have my writing optioned for movies, but at the end of the day, if that never happened, and if no one liked my writing, I'd still write.
