hi Michelle! Thanks for the shout-out and thoughtful analysis. As you have realized I’m sure, my rant was supposed to be a thought-provoking contribution to the debate.
Writers on Medium are wide ranging and diverse in their habits — if I had to describe the extremes, I guess it is serial bloggers at one end, and deliberate, meticulous writers & poets on the other end, who will work on on perfecting a piece for a week or more.
No one writer fits into a single category — many like you and I are both poets & bloggers, to varying degrees, who swing between the two extremes.
So my call to Not Publish Every Day is more of a challenge to writers in general, to write as much as they feel able and fit, but also to pause and take the time needed to put out pieces that are worthy of being shared with this giant universe of readers.
