What I worry about
Last week, I met a friend of book blogger Chachic. Let’s call him O. O and I talked about books for one of his school projects. He was kind enough to send me the draft of what he plans to submit to his teacher, and I found a bit there that I’d like to share.
Here it is, with some editing on my part.
When I was starting out, I would ask myself, how can I write something that a publisher would want to read? But now, because publishing is so easy, I don’t have to think about that anymore. What I think about is how to write something “good,” something that a reader would want to pick up or buy.
I don’t know how this affects other writers, but knowing that the reader (and not the publisher) is my main audience has made it easier for me to write. I don’t have to worry so much about publishing. Instead I worry about its entertainment value. Will I want to read it? I write now to entertain myself and certain people.
Thanks for letting me talk, O. 🙂
