I just published post number #200 on here and 26 are currently under distribution. How did that happen?

I published my first 5 posts in August 2019 and then proceeded to forget Medium exists. When I started questioning my gender in February, I jumped back on here to use writing to learn and explore my own experience.

I published 4 posts in February 2021 and only 1 in June. In August, I published 7 posts. In September, I published 55 posts. So that brings us to October 2021. I’ve published 128 posts and it’s only the 24th. It will be 129 once this one is live and I have 5 currently submitted to various publications.
