I’m writing this letter from my old Macbook Pro bought in 2009. You don’t give a damn, and you’re absolutely right! My current computer being under repair, I had to reboot my mummified Macbook to keep Scribe alive. And you see, finding my old friend from 11 years ago gave me a twinge in my heart. The bugger is out of breath like a Sunday runner, but he’s turning out great!
I hope you’ve had a good week, full of reading and writing! As for me, I subscribed to The Atlantic to improve my English by reading quality articles. As you can see, the famous magazine is on Medium, but the articles published here are only a very small part of all the exciting content that can be found on the official website.
I also shed a tear while listening to Mac Miller’s posthumous album, which is absolutely sweet and once again reveals all the genius of the rapper. In the song that closes this painful album, Once a Day, Mac sings: “Don’t keep it all in your head/The only place nobody can ever see.”
Rest in peace, genius.
I’ve started writing longer stories again this week, maybe you’ve read my thoughts as a (slightly) misunderstood writer. In any case, it felt good to write this piece! Speaking of writing, I reworked the writing page in the navigation menu of the publication. It was a bit of a mess, not all the stories were about writing. In fact, all the stories with the tag writing appeared here. To be more qualitative, this page now offers stories curated by myself.
This week’s column was dedicated to J.W. Parr. I hope you enjoyed reading his poems. Take a look at his profile to immerse yourself more deeply in his writing. For the next edition starting today, I chose to highlight Annie Bell. I loved her latest poem, which deals with self-love in a particularly delightful way! Go to Scribe’s home page to read Annie’s stories!
And finally, I’m very excited to announce the launch of a new fiction section! My undisclosed secret is finding tomorrow’s greatest literary writer. So what better way to do that than to give more room to fiction on Scribe? And then with the nonfiction stories proliferating on Medium, I think we need stories to get some fresh oxygen.
The section debuts with When The Wyrd Ones Fall In Love, a story by Kat of Magik published this week on the publication. More stories are to come, but I will always put quality before quantity. If you have stories you’d like to see published in this section, feel free to come forward!
All right, I’m done talking! Enjoy your reading, and have a nice Sunday!
Take care ♥︎
