Who Do You Write For?

Directly or Indirectly

I saw this as I was just randomly searching for quotes, I am not sure where it came from but I certainly agree. Whether the person you write for is you or someone else, there is always someone.

  1. I write to vent- it is my VOICE. I can only write from experience. I WISH I could writer better dialogue, but I cannot have everything I want. The pieces I like the best are often overlooked; but I remain true to me

    I do not know about anyone else, but I am my own worst critic

  2. Very true. I think that every writer writes partly for themselves and partly for other people. I write what I want to write, I write to express myself and I write to because I feel I have stories I need to tell. But I also write because I think those stories are worth telling and (even if we’re not supposed to say it) because I want to be heard.

  3. Reblogged this on harmony77uk and commented:
    I don’t know who, specifically, I write for. I’d say that I write for me, but then I want other people to read it. Maybe if I figured out just who it was that I was writing for I could give my work a bit more direction.

  4. It seems to me that writers who come across as “warmer” personalities are ones who write specifically for someone dear to them. Kurt Vonnegut has always said he writes as if he’s addressing only his sister who died of cancer very young. They shared a sensee of humor, so he writes to make her laugh. I think there’s a lot to that.
