Who Are You Writing For?

(A recent conversation with my seven-year-old son Ethan. I was working on my novel and he was checking out the Microsoft Word document I had open on my computer.)
Ethan: Are you writing a story?

Me: Yes. It’s a book, a novel.

Ethan: What’s it about?


Me: It’s about a family.

Ethan: Our family?

Me: No.

Ethan: Maybe you could write a story about our family.

Me: Maybe.

Ethan: Who are you writing the story for?


Me: That’s a great question, Ethan.


Me: One day, hopefully, it will get published and you could find it in a store.

Ethan: So it’s for everyone?

Me: Yes, it’s for everyone. That’s a good way to think of it.
