So there's quite a bit of backstory here, so sit down and grab a snack. I recently visited my mother who lives in Chesapeake Bay, and my sister, who lives with her, told me about a stray cat she encountered on a daily basis at her bus stop each morning. Of course I was intrigued because I'm quite the cat lover, and I haven't had a cat companion in quite awhile. So I visited the cat and quickly fell in love with the little guy. Then one night I visited him, and found a lady trying to kick him, cursing at him, and otherwise just being really mean to the very friendly cat. So I decided to adopt him, and I've named him Stanley. Here's a picture, if you're curious: So you're probably wondering how all of that is relevant to the question. Well, I've decided to write a story loosely based on Stanley. I've plotted the major events of the story out, but the next task is figuring out who the best audience will be. Will I get published? Probably not. But obviously knowing the target audience will allow me to structure the sentences better, and allow me to decide on word choice better. The two major themes of the story are going to be finding out where home is, and figuring out those who truly matter. So, who do y'all believe the best audience to target would be?
