Writing Is Joining a Conversation
Publishing a piece of writing online, no matter how simple it might be, is joining an ongoing conversation.
When I was pondering whether or not it would be a good idea to publish a short post here every day, this was the one argument that made me decide to do it.
If the plan had been just to try and reignite my writing habit, I could sit quietly every morning and work on my stories. I would be writing again, even if no one ever read it.
Still, I would miss a lot by not joining the conversation.
No matter how much the platform changes, at its nature, Medium will always be a positive environment for writers.
It feels energizing to share this space with other like-minded individuals, each pursuing their own creative goals.
An article you read by chance can contain the answer to a question that had always bothered you. A response from a fellow writer might completely change the way you look at your own work.
Very few things are as valuable for a writer’s growth as the insight from someone who knows and understands their journey.
I missed the conversation. It feels good to be back.
