Do you write to be read or do you write to think?
It’s an artificial duality, of course, so feel free to add other reasons, but do consider your motivation in writing. I think for some people the foremost motivation must be to communicate to others. Maybe that’s most people.
Others, I think, write so they can figure out what they are thinking. For that motivation, I don’t think it matters so much whether others read you or not.
Where do you fit if you have to choose one or the other? Whatever you choose, does it work? Do you keep bleeding over from one to the other? Look deep in your writing soul and tell me what you see.
