I’ve published articles, listicles and lately, flash fiction stories on Medium. The number of reads for my articles (complete with enticing headlines that I have checked with headline apps) is much higher than for the fiction.
My most popular article was about Trump (sigh).
Of course, people might say that my articles are much better than my fiction but I don’t think that is the issue.
I think it is hard to find fiction fans here, at least for me it is.
Oh, one more thing. I found this article when searching the word fiction on Medium. What else did I find under that search term? A load of articles about fiction. I kind of expected to find at least a bit of actual fiction under that keyword but nope.
