I don’t really know where to ask this, but I am confused about Target Audiences so I thought I’d ask my fellow fogeys:
I really don’t get it. I’ve even read the explanation and I still don’t get it. They say you don’t need to have it, and no-one can see it, but somehow it is helpful. I can see to a certain extent that it can reflect the age of the protagonists, but what if you are writing about a young elf who is 30 years old? The Hobbit was a children’s story, but the protagonist was 60-odd. It seems to be excluding audiences to me, and I can’t see how that is desirable.
