I write to empower myself and others, to look at life from a new perspective, to show that there are other ways of dealing with issues than the ones we are familiar with.
There is no one specific and even when it sounds selfish, I do it just for me, because it is something I love to do.
When writing manuscripts for children, it's for the children. I like to leave the reader with a positive life lesson by the end of the story. The novel I am writing, I think I am writing it more for myself and hope others will enjoy it.
I write for myself, since not many people understand my poetry, some do, but I think It's as exciting writing for myself. I get excited when I write a poem successfully and when I put together poetry books, and keep the collections going. I am in the process of creating my second book, while my first Water Fever is being given out to friends and aquaintances, a lot of friends from college in Caldwell. I have humble support, you only need a dozen or less.
The vulnerable listener that wants to hear what this tiny part of the universe is saying.
Me and me alone. I believe very strongly that the best way to create something other people will enjoy is to write what you yourself enjoy. If you aren't invested in what you're creating, you can't expect anyone else to be either.
Oh I write stories i want to read. I create worlds I want to live in, So me really.
BUt it is nice to get feedback.
The pathetic, beautiful, uncomfortable, shining teen hiding inside my own heart.
I have something inside that compels me. I have to do it to make me who I am. So I guess the answer is that I write for me.
I write books I'd pick up if I were browsing a shelf. That's first and foremost.
Myself is the simple answer. If I don't like it I can't expect anyone else to. But at the end of the day, I write for anyone else that might read it and share my glee at having created something that I like.
I write for myself.
