I always ask this one question of writers. Who do you write for?


The answers vary a) I write for a general audience. b) I write for a specific audience c) I write for myself. c) always makes me smile because few of us are rewarded with fame and fortune. Next best is self satisfaction which we all can achieve if we're smart enough to realize it. As an ad crerative director facing a new project, I always asked myself who am I talking to? What do I want to say to them. Add - satisfying your own taste with words truest to you, is a good place for a young writer to start. Again, thanks for your interest. David Russell

    Good answer. David. Never forget, without readers, writers get no playback satisfaction.

    If it doesn't give you pleasure, it becomes work. Which you my or may not want to continue. Writing is hard, but it also should provide satisfaction. David

    You write "How to....". If the subject is of interest to readers and the job you do works for them, you can probably do well. David

    If you ever want to be a published writer, always check your spelling before submitting your work. (liek, tallent). An agent will do it for you, but doubt your ability to be successful and perhaps lose interest when a piece isn't perfect.

    Without others to read what you write, why write? David
