So why is it important to write for yourself? Does it even make sense? You had a great idea, well crafted paragraphs, you want others to read it, you think this as you write. It’s why you up the challenge for your characters, and put them in horrible spots, and create beautiful landscapes. You want a million people to talk about your story!
Writers hear it all the time,
write because you love it
because chances are you will never make it big and you will never make money.
So why should you write for yourself even if you want others to see it?
Because if you are without fear you can create the best stories. You can hold nothing back because you are thinking,
I am the only one that will see this! I can say whatever I want!
