I write to keep me sane. I write so that my words may outlive my life. I write to find redemption

Do you write for yourself or the market?

Will Write for Chocolate, the fantastic comic based on the crazy times of an often frustrated writer, asks this week "Who do you write for yourself or the market?"

For me, I write to entertain. I don't feel like there is any choice in if I am or am not a writer. But I could ignore all the impulses ( and go slowly mad) and not write. I do write with the intent that others will read and enjoy my work. But if there was not one person on earth willing to read my work I bet I would still be off scribbling something.

What about you?
