Yeah, when one true doesn't necessitate the other false, or vice versa.

Anything new?

When you talk, do you talk to yourself? Or do you talk to the other person?

(Not in real life, when you're writing...for example, here...)

I'd say 90% of the stuff I write down, I'm telling myself (former, current, or future) something I think he needs to be told.

Anyone else? Or do you always write for an audience?

I'd recommend switching it up from time to time...if you're into writing...just because both styles can reveal a lot.

I'm definitely talking to the other person. I talk to myself so much in my mind (and aloud), and I'm so often alone a good majority of the time, that I don't need anymore of that when I'm with other people. I'm definitely expressing an idea that I want the other person to know about, or what I think or how I feel about something they're talking about. I almost always am talking in response to someone else and do not often iniate a conversation.

When I write, I am always writing for an audience. Of course that is obvious when I'm writing one of my books, but also in my journal, I am always imagining that someone else will be reading it one day (which would be nice if that actually does happen, though it probably will not).
