I've voted indifferent, because I mainly write for myself and my partner, but I'm perfectly okay with people reading my stuff and even commenting on it. To be honest, even if the person doesn't want to plot with me, I find feedback fun. And a part of me does police a thing here and there for a broader audience, depending on the platform I'm on and the rules.

 

But having others read it is just a pleasant bonus. My true audience, when I write, is the person (or people) I'm writing with, and they are my main concern.

 

What when you have a thread alone, or when you write something alone? Then there is not a writing partner...

I don't write alone threads. My solo writing goes on my blog, so in theory, there is a general target audience, even if just my Facebook friends.

I always write for an audience, which is somewhat silly, but #yolo. While I don't expect or need people to read my posts, I write my posts kind of like a sitcom -- where I explain things that have been explained in other threads so that you don't have to read all of my posts to know what he hizz-eck is happening if you just pop into a random thread because you're curious. 

 

That said, I even do this in private 1x1s through email? So goodness knows why I write that way. (Perhaps its for the #bigbrother reading my emails who are not genuinely invested in my RP characters, but doesn't want to read back?)

At first I have to admit I found it strange when anyone other than my writing partner read my stuff but now I actually enjoy it. I like when people are moved by what I write even if it's not directly related to them.

I write for the sake of the rp. I write to keep it interesting and to develop the characters and plots involved - if anyone else happens to read it then I'm cool with that. I'm no professional writer, but I'm pretty happy with my writing capabilities, so I'm comfortable enough if others view my stories.

Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.

I write for myself - if I like it, great! - but I adore people reading my writing because it tells me that they're interested in what my character does. I don't need them to read it, but it's just nice to see.

If I wasted my time on everyone, I wouldn't have any left for myself.

- A.
