I hope she gets in touch. Not for the one-off $100, but because you sound like you might go the extra mile in mentoring. The idea that someone is offering time, an ear, and the wealth of learnt experience. In her place that’s what I’d want/need.
I can’t possibly go through all the disparate comments on and pieces prompted by Talia’s. Medium hasn’t got it indexed at all well. Lots of angry and judgemental stuff to plow through. TL;DR. Kudos to you for making yours stand out with its opening line. Good hook, well baited.
Thank you for being different, making different.
