Thanks for the comment and for the generous advice! I see what you mean when you say that we shouldn’t let others’ reaction dictate how we view our own work. At the same time, I think the instant feedback provided by Medium can be a valuable tool for improvement. In a way, it’s not that different from being a comedian and going into a random bar to test a couple of jokes.

I write short stories. I also write about writing. If I'm procrastinating on both, I write about why I haven't been writing. E-mail:
