“Primarily fiction” depends on if you’re counting hours spend writing or pieces put out.
Aura Wilming

Yes, I see your point. I would not want to be involved quite now in creating, editing or co-editing a publication. As you may know, I edited several print publications (business publications!) and I am not interested in doing anything like that again. A million years ago I co-founded and edited two publications, one a college student literary magazine and the other a graduate student bulletin. Now in my dotage I just want to write fictional stories and I want to place them where people will read them. I could just create my own publication here on Medium, but that seems so vanity press. I have heavily promoted my archive site and virtually no one has visited it.

Maybe it is just that Medium is not the place for me. Looking over my stats, I see at least some people are reading me, but am aghast that my most recommended story is a comment I made about somebody else’s non-fiction post!

I enjoy the challenge of The Weekly Knob, but I have been doing a lot of traveling lately and haven’t been able to keep up. I plan to return soon. I have contributed to a few other online publications and had a story in an anthology recently, but I don’t really feel comfortable with any of them: too uneven, too amateur or too cliquish. I took on 100 Naked Words and hope to hang in there for 100 stories, but that is not my primary goal.

I have some stories I really want to get out into the world, but I don’t want them to languish in the dark. They are my babies and need to see the light!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
