I want my readers to come away with similar things that I want whenever I read a book, essay, or devotional. I want them to find hope and encouragement. Heaven forbid that my writing causes someone to feel discouraged or hopeless after reading something I have written.
I also want my future novel readers to feel satisfied that they have read a good story and would like to read more.
I would also like it if my readers are challenged by my writing.
Lately I have been reading some new authors and the thing that makes me want to read more of their work is because they have given me hope, encouragement or they have satisfied me with a good well rounded story. They have given me hope that I can do the same thing for my readers. They have encouraged me to take those sometimes hard and challenging steps into the unknown.
I have learned that life is too short to read crappy writing. Therefore if I want people to read my stuff, I have to give them quality. Not necessarily quantity.
