it’s liberating to focus only on what I feel directed to write. As we’ve discussed previously, some of the posts I treasure the most get few claps.
This is part of the “deal” with my muse, too. I’m not even going to look at stats anymore. Is a story successful? A failure? If I’m allowing myself to make that judgment after the fact, measured in claps, that’s just stupid. But it’s very easy to fall into that trap.
