A lot of very interesting discussions came about because I introduced myself to someone who was new. And then I FOLLOWED THEM.
Thanks for this mini-primer, Lon Shapiro!

I also like to highlight when someone writes something beautifully, or makes an especially perceptive point. Without saying a word, it’s a very direct message to a new writer, “this is great,” in the hopes that they will begin to recognize their great stuff as they are writing, with no one giving feedback.

Like what you read? Give Lon Shapiro a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
