Don't create for an imaginary group of people
"What will people think?" "Will people want this?" "Which parts should I keep and which parts should I remove?"What should I even write about?". The Faceless Other is a group of people you've invented in your head who are going to use or judge things you do. You can think 'hmm, people might not like that,' or 'hmm, people might find that part boring,' for any part of your creation. Today's world is full of people living for the Faceless Other. There were several people in high school who'd follow hundreds of Instagram accounts just to be followed back, and then their sense of self worth would be determined by how many likes their posts got, despite the fact that they didn't know half the people liking them. What will people think if we drop our degree to pursue our passion? What will people say if we work on that idea that 'everyone' laughed at? Your judgement will also be clouded, making you ask questions like - what should I study in university? What do I really want to do in life? You can't find out what an imaginary crowd of people wants, but it's not impossible to find out what you or someone else wants.
