Having a Reason

Ran across this blog post the other day and the following bit struck a note with me:
I've been re-evaluating what I do and why, and it's really made me more aware of my process and what my personal goals are for the stories I write. Not just the story goals, but the things I wasn't from a story and what I hope to achieve for the reader. The kind of writer I want to be and the stories I want to tell. It's been interesting so far, and I'm curious to see how this develops.
It remined me of an earlier post I wrote on a similar theme.

The kind of writer I want to be? The kind of stories I want to tell?

I want to be a writer who tells exciting, swashbuckling, thrilling SF/Fantasy stories that people enjoy.

A writer who tells stories that entertain.

If you read one of my stories and say "Wow. That was fun!" then I will have accomplished that.
