I put in a few members only stories and then decided just to write and not worry about for who and not be led or distracted by wonders and trying to figure readers and algorithms. Stay true to you, find what makes your heart sing. Notice when the writing comes alive. Write to discover and share the thrill. I saw someone wrote that “we” write to be remembered. I am quite sure I don’t agree. I write to discover, for the wonder of seeing something on the page that I didn’t realize I was going to say. I write for sculpting something out of a mass of words, finding the form within. Liberating the thought that was hiding inside of me without me ever knowing it was there.
