Updates From Introspection, Exposition — February Makes Way for March
Introspection, Exposition family,
February was a fantastic month for us Introspection, Exposition!
We gained even more very talented writers, and both they and some of our consistent contributors have generously shared with us their difficult, funny, and compelling stories.
You all are incredible.
The publication grew by over a third(!) in this last month alone and is up to 211 followers. This is, of course, entirely thanks to our tremendous writers.
We have a new category!
It’s called Curiosity, and it’s a place for our writers to talk about their unique obsessions. So far, we have articles covering ancient history, paranormal theory, and true crime.
If you want to tell us why Pokemon is fascinating AF, you can do so here. Just tag your story with ‘curiosity’.
Our most-read story this month was one such article written by George Randall:
Shout out to David Sales, who somehow managed to nail both prompts in one story!
Don’t Get in the Canoe If It’s Tied to a Speed Boat
I survived the 70s, my older brothers, and one terrible idea
This story also happens to be the second most-read this month. 👏
February prompt honorary mentions:
As always, you’re welcome to submit any story that fits the publication’s intentions. But if you want to, you can consider submitting a story inspired by one of the prompts below.
- “I still don’t know”
- “I treasure”
Use a prompt
To submit a story based on one of this month’s prompts, just tag the story with your chosen prompt. (Don’t worry — we’ll swap that tag out for you before publishing.)
At the end of the month, we’ll pick and highlight our favorite prompt-based story on the publication’s home page and shout it out in the newsletter!
If you have any questions, please feel free to drop us a comment.
About Me Stories
You may know this already, but I’m also an editor for the publication About Me Stories. If you haven’t yet written an ‘about me’ story for their publication, you should!
It’s perhaps the best way to introduce yourself on your profile (pinned at the top) and it’s a great way to pick up new readers.
What a fantastic month of stories, and what an honor it’s been to take on and publish the work of some very talented writers. ❤
