Recently, I applied to become a contributor at a new site called Medium that lets you publish things — articles, essays, fiction, or whatever. I was accepted, and since then, I’ve been trying to decide what I wanted to write, what I might want to share on Medium rather than here. Tonight, in the shower, I thought of something; the words started flowing in my head, and despite being seriously tired, I muddled through how to make a “collection” on the site and put my words on the glowing screen. It’s probably the most honest work I’ve ever written, so I haven’t hit publish just yet. I sent a preview link to a couple of wonderful ladies and already got a very positive response back from one. So I’m probably going to put my essay out there in a few days. After all, what’s the point in being writer if you don’t write about what really matters now and then?
Further bulletins as events warrant. For now, over & out.
UPDATE: I did publish the piece; you can read it on Medium.
