I just want to acknowledge that I love this. I never reached the lofty heights that some writers did through the MPP, so I guess the consolation prize for me is that those illusions were never shattered. I was hoping to offset my membership fee, but, as it turns out, even that idea was delusional. Nobody ever reads my older posts, so they just linger in the catacombs of Medium collecting dust. Hope springs eternal, as they say, though, so I find myself poking around another site on the internet.
