Carla's Writing World is becoming a favorite blog stop for me. Today's post
Writer, How well do you know your audience? made me want to drop everything
and do her exercise. And, in fact I did! I'm sharing it below.
Carla's Writing Exercise: What is important to your audience? Think of 20 things that matter to your audience.
My response is below.
What is important to my audience? Hmm... First, I need to think of the audience that will one day read my book (optimistic, aren't I?). Well, they will be like me and my daughter. People who love to read chapter books full of adventure and fantasy (books like Harry Potter and Peter and the Starcatchers).
Here is what I think matters to them:
Believability (in characters, story and setting)

Good Vs. Evil
Love for Main Character
Pets (yes, pets...are always good)
Relationships between characters
Well Researched (if applicable)
Now, to keep this all in mind as I write! :0)
