Kurt Vonnegut, may he rest in peace, always had an audience of one in mind when he wrote, so he told me. He said he wrote to his sister, who was killed in a car accident along with her husband, which is when Kurt took over the care of her children as well as his own. But he kept on privately addressing his books to her. I've done that, had a specific audience in mind when I write but I write so many different things that I've found it helps to write to different people, depending on what I'm writing about.. When it's surfing like this, aka blogging, my most frequent projected audience is the late Canadian writer, Jane Rule. She was tolerant, encouraging, encompassing and she had a great sense of humour. Are any of you out there (out there in Blogland) like that? If so, let me know and I will address a thought to you.
