It’s been humbling trying to make my way on “Medium” because there are literally MILLIONS OF BETTER WRITERS out there. I read so many incredible pieces of writing on there and I think “Woah – that’s amazing. I can’t compete with that”.
I know I can’t compete…yet.
YET is the key word here. Because maybe one day I can.
Until then, I’ll keep reading. I’ll keep researching. I’ll keep taking note of writing that resounds with me. I’ll keep leaving claps (such a weird thing on Medium but I’m slowly getting used to it and now I’m getting offended if someone leaves me ONE…like…how dare you, man? Lol) and keep interacting with other writers.
It’s definitely changing the way I write.
It’s also changing the way I view my memoir. I’m going to re-write it chapter by chapter until it starts to look like the incredible, moving, poetic, show-stopping, heart-wrenching pieces I read on Medium.
I’m inspired and I also know it’s a hard slog.
But I think I can do this, guys.
