Thanks for the kind words about my writing!
I do write for markets outside of Medium (I’m in both the Funny Times and Reader’s Digest this month) but last year the top five most reliable markets for my work stopping running the kind of essays/humor I write (or the editor I’d worked with moved on and the replacement editor didn’t like my stuff.)
Instead of scrambling to replace those markets and editors, I decided to give myself a year to see if I could replace that income by writing on this platform.
Which I was well on my way to doing until the rules changed.
And now that I’ve written this somewhat lengthy response, it occurs to me that I ought to expand on this and turn it into an actual post. So that’s what I’m going to do.
Thanks for the inspiration!
