HA! Me, too. I kind of figured that’s what you meant. I was telling Tre yesterday that I’m happy for my friends who have the dream of making a living with their writing, so for them, I guess I’m glad Medium has rolled out this new partner program. But for me, it seems like the best of Medium is now behind me. It was precisely because I could come here and write for catharsis that I showed up in the first place. I know that the second I look at my writing through the lens of profit, it will cease being a source of relief and healing, and instead become a source of anxiety and stress, attached to word counts and readership potential and branding.
And then what would I have to relieve myself of THAT?
