I also wrote for small folks; stories & poems for Grandkid's birthday 2 - 12. Who do you write for?
Storytellersus, do you write for or to a specific person, a particular group or a general audience? As an Ad Agency Creative Director, I always began each new project asking myself two questions. Who am I talking to? What do I most want to say to them? It worked for me for 60 years and it still works today, I think, with my newly discovered Hubbers audience. Actually, in pursuit of meeting other writers to learn and to share. Hub was very generous a few weeks ago printing a neat interview. Read me and I'll read you.

Who do I write for? Anyone who will take the time to read my words. I have been writing all my life and used this wordsmithing in many different ways. I have written vows for weddings, birthdays as well as funeral presentations, for my children and my mother, and when no one is there to hear them, I pour my words on paper for myself. To clear my mind of the ideas that rattle around until I grab them and paint them onto the paper canvas. I enjoy the process and relish in the satisfaction of another one's completion.
As of late, I use the knack of wordsmithing on my employees to encourage safety, productivity and respect. Storytelling and a humorous antedotes bring the best out of them and has brought a decent level of success for me over the years.
To me the writing is a hobby I enjoy to tinker around with and should anyone chose to read anything I have written, I welcome their interest but insist on their honest opinion to the story.
Hi, I usually write fiction for kids 10-14 as these are my granddaughters ages now.
I graduated from writing school and the course was for Children and Teenagers
called "The Institute of Children's Literature."
I do and have written a couple of non fiction stories.
I write some for adults and my last book is a memoir.
I am looking for an agent at the moment, but my penny rugs, ( orders) have taken me to another place well for the moment
So to be able to meet other writers is wonderful too
Also write poetry for children and adults.
Sounds selfish, but I write for myself. I have a deep need to express myself in many ways, and art and writing just happen to be two of them. There are not enough hours in a day for me to devote to all of my creative outlets, and each time I am caught up with one, I can hear the others call my name! I have two half finished paintings, but I can't seem to stay away from Hubpages long enough to finish them....Then I lay awake at night and swear the next day I am going to paint. Ah well, just too little time, lol!
David, I apologize for not reading you and for not answering this question!!! I did not see it. I must get better about finding my way in HubPages. I know I am an oldie but I am not a groupie, lol.
As to your question, when I write I have an audience in mind. Sometimes that audience is myself. I am trying to figure out something or learn something about a subject and my method of choice is to write about it.
When I have put together books, I also have an audience in mind. These are my most successful stories. I am only self-published. I have difficulty writing for a general audience because I do not feel the reader in my writing.
Thanks for asking and for reminding me that this is a process worthy of sharing and encouragement.
I just started on HP .... but i fugure i write for myself
my doctors said it might help get all the stuff that is bottled up inside out....
and to me , it doesnt matter wether or not people read what i have written.... but i do enjoy it when someone can relate to one of my poems or it has touched them in some way.... when someone leaves a nice comment it makes me feel good inside.
Quite frankly I write for me and for the knowledge that I have created something, anything while I was here.

Am I the only one who finds writing to be an extension of myself?Madonna said, "express yourself." I'm not referring to her interpretation. However, she is correct in how the brain interprets how the self puts effort to move and shake and tango in the dance of both chaos and...
