For me, the end goal with writing, is honing the skill to the point where I can write successfully on my own, unpsupervised, and confident in my ability to review/fix my errors. The point, for me, is to write as clearly as possible in the most specific way, in order to convey the correct meaning for the correct purpose, to my reader. Do I have dreams of getting pieces/novels published? Sure, but for me, its just acquiring skill so I can write free of interruption, and 'delayed' word choice, allowing my thoughts to flow as they come.

As for most of everything youve posted, all those questions can be answered on the forums. Even threads are titled with the same questions, and all have been discussed rather deeply. Hope this helps. Feel free to message me anytime.
