Like you, Elizabeth, I am happy here. I am not here as a path to being a professional writer. I am here for the experience, the opportunity to improve my writing, the chance to read the amazing works of others, and to support and feel supported by this community that nurtures me.

I understand and sympathize with the complaints and agree that these issues need to be addressed but, in the meanwhile, I will continue reading and writing and connecting.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
