Mark, your words are mine except I’d say I write for the purpose of discussion and discovery more than entertainment, probably because I’ve never seen myself as an entertainer.

The applause and comments are gas in the car. I’ve often written that I’d rather have a small Medium tribe that interacts with me regularly than a huge one that remains mostly silent and anonymous.

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.
