Writing for a public audience can change a writer's style completely because there are many more factors for the writer to think about when realizing that their work will be read by a vast audience. One way that an author might have to make sure they are not offending anyone in their writing because of the many different types of people who are reading their work. An author might not think something if offensive, but a reader coming from a different background might read the same work and be very offended without the author even realizing what they have done. This is why editing and review by other people is pivotal in writing before publishing to a public audience. The feedback from the public audience can also affect how you feel about your own writing.
