writing doesnt necessarily have to satisfy the auidence as much as it should the author

true, but also want people to read, the last storyline i did, didn't have a murder in it, and some have said it left them cold, or bored. I will work to change that so that they will continue to tune it, if you will...Anyway, don't give up so soon.

i had no intention to

murder does not compose everything
attempted murder
abudtced women
familys broken, torn, and mended

that is pure drama

Now, I'm going to have to disagree. Whether you (in general, not you) are publishing a book or a website, you have to have an audience. You have to write to satisfy them or they won't come back. If you don't want to do that, you might as well just write your stories down in a little notebook and keep them in your desk.

Readers are fickle. Give them one bad story and they may give up entirely.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

still, but would you rather go on writing something you hate but everyone else enjoys?

I'm just saying find something you like to write about that your audience will enjoy.

very true
it always help when you find an auidence who has the same interests as you do

(thats why i chose to post my site here, with other people interested deeply in clue, rather than give it to my uniterested friends or something else)
