Do you write what you would most like to read or what you find most amusing to write?

These are often different for me and sometimes opposite. It's easy and fun to write horror and anything gory, but I would never, ever read it. I like to read happy endings, I like to write miserable stories where everyone dies dramatically. I come up with concepts that make me chortle while I type, but which I personally would skim. Do you have this issue? What do you do?

I think it's interesting that you can write gore but not read it. Do you think that's about being in control-- that the horror of it is okay when you are in charge of it? I think what I like to write and what I like to read are pretty much the same. I'll have to give that more thought...
