I don’t care if you’re a “blogger”, a poet, a novelist, or someone who writes marketing copy. You need a reader. You need someone who is your model, someone who you are writing specifically for. Without this idea of who you’re writing for you might find that you’re writing just for yourself, or worse, for no one at all.
I guess I don’t know who my ideal reader is. This scares me now. I will get over it. I guess I write for someone who could be me. But I’m not very sure about that.
