I admire your response to the attack from a few days ago and you standing by your word to create this publication.
For what it’s worth, I think you were unfairly selected to be the poster child of “self-help blow hards”.
In the Voidist, I believe that you can create a publication of beautiful substance and voluptuous depth across a spectrum of aching regret and giddy joy without the need of thin, watered-down, clickbaity content.
On a different but related note, I feel your pain. I stammer. Still do, but I find ways to get around it. I write to communicate and express how I feel. To me, it feels like dancing.
I know other stammerers who often don’t speak because of this impediment, but their writing inspires, moves and lifts. No wonder people are envious of your success on Medium.
I’d love to contribute. I’ll send my submission through when it’s ready. Keep doing what you do.
