I have noticed that readers are much more forgiving of one's writing then writers are. I suggest writing for readers. They want a story and characters to love. They'll over look some grammar and punctuation errors. What they want is a story that keeps them engaged. A writer is going to try to re-write the story for you, given half a chance. Because that is what they do -- write and re-write and re-write. No, I say write for readers. They appreciate you so much more.
I'm a serious writer, meaning I have a regular daily writing habit, and I'm interested in sharing my work through publication. My favorite literary form is the novel. I write to entertain myself and my readers.
