Who do you write for? I've heard a lot of people say to write for yourself, but I usually think of someone else when I'm writing. The editor I want to buy my writing. For the most part, that editor is who I am aiming to impress. It doesn't always work out, but sometimes it does. I can't say I ever write for the readers because the idea of that is a little terrifying to me. Of course, readers are the ones who consume our writing once it's published, but I always feel quite nervous about that and try not to think about it too much. It helps me to have a single reader in mind. What helps you during the writing process? Who do you picture reading your work while you are writing or revising your story? Who do you write for?
