I enjoyed this. Thought-provoking stuff.
My most ‘successful’ piece is a load of photographs of the inside of my kid’s bag. 3000 likes. My most recent successful piece, currently pulling in all the likes, is a collection of photographs taken by my son. 300 likes. My favourite piece, written with no input from my son, has 8 likes.
My son is four. He’s better than me at Medium. I wonder if this is a sign from God/Ev that I should pack it in. Whenever I write stuff ‘for me’, the stuff doesn’t get read or recommended. Because I don’t see the point of writing unless it’s read, I wondering if logic dictates that I should quit writing. Or, at least, to continue to use my son as a creative dynamo.
