End Of Year Review #3

The Fiction Edition

Greetings PW writers and readers! The Pub is open. Come, grab a drink and a snack and find yourselves a comfortable place to read. I have a few more requests to make among you, my friends.

As I mentioned in the first review, I am thrilled with how well Promptly Written has been received and how enthusiastically you’ve all responded.

However, the trend of low readership has extended well into Fiction stories.

I have to admit, I still feel great shame for not assisting my publications’ writers more, and I accept my part of the blame in not making all of our writers here feel welcome, to know their work has worth and meaning, and to know it deserves to be read and acknowledge with a clap and/or comment. And as the EIC of this publication, I will be implementing a few new changes in January that I hope will make PW a more receptive place for all writers. I will be putting out another article on that soon.

I know we all have our favorite writers here on Medium. We follow them, subscribe to them, immediately rush to read them as soon as they’ve published something, clap, and comment. And yet, there are so many amazing writers on Medium who are barely recognized. And they are awesome writers! Everyone on the previous list, this list, and future lists, I have read and have delighted in their work. Please give some of these other writers a chance. You may just find your next favorite!

This will be about October Fiction only. There will be another list on Dec. 26th for November Fiction Only. There are just too many little-read Fiction stories in PW to inundate you all with them before Christmas.

So please, as you visit these Fiction stories, read them and only after reading, clap as you feel inspired and if you have time, please leave them a comment.

As you read each of these, please come back here and HIGHLIGHT them so that we know they are being read. Thank you!
