I don’t need tons of money to be happy.

Why is the drum of making money on Medium played so much?

I don't want to fit my ideas in a box.

I write for one person.

The making-money-on-medium is a bandwagon I’ve no intention of joining.

I’ll don’t want money to dictate how much fun I’ll get from writing.
