Whose Book Is It, Anyway?

Last Sunday morning I was in D.C., sitting around the kitchen table with 2 old friends.  We had seen the movie “Margaret” the night before and were rehashing the intelligence of the film and also talking about the scenes that didn’t work.  My friend Ken read from a review that said that Matthew Broderick and the director had been high school friends in NYC and several of the scenes were taken directly from their experiences. Then, Anita and I agreed that most of those scenes didn’t work. They were superfluous and added minutes to a long movie but didn’t add to our enjoyment.

I thought that they probably had a great time recalling school days and filming but it seemed to be self indulgent. It was right about then that I thought of my two novels, one completed, one with only a couple dozen pages – the light went on (just like in the movies).  I have been enjoying writing this new book sooo much that I think I have completely lost sight of any potential readers. Note to Linda: am I writing primarily for my own enjoyment (an okay decision;

I already have a job) or, am I planning to reach other people (in which case I have to readjust my thinking and writing).
