Dear Bonnie,

I am so sorry some of your experiences were crappy here, on Medium. It it hurts when a writer you admire turns out to be human, & a sorta jerky one, at that.

I’m always torn about writing more to make more money, or sticking with twice a week but trying to be non-repetitive. But ultimately I’m only kidding myself — my audience is not that large & I doubt I’ll make more by writing more. So why compromise content?

I also feel a bit like a fraud since all my stories have been rattling around in my brain for so long, almost none of them seem fresh or that interesting. Plus I add “follow” to follow people who follow me, but rarely read their stuff. Oy! A hypocrite. But time is short… argh!

I’ve decided to read more of the people I enjoy & not bother with others. Bleh. Life is short.
