Dear readers, I hope you are doing well and that you still have the energy to move into this last month of 2019!
A lot has happened on Scribe this month. Between the poets’ awakening, your interest in the French language, and the celebration of the 6,000 readers, there was enough to pour the champagne! But hey, let’s be serious by the end of the year. Anyway, the daily madness is good too!
You already know this, but I love taking care of Scribe and all of you, dear readers and writers who make the publication come alive.
With these damn 24-hour days only, and with the time I spend growing Scribe, I can’t read all the talented writers I like here on Medium and who don’t only publish on this publication. But I don’t forget you and I do my best not to lose the thread of your journey through writing.
Scribe is growing faster and faster and is attracting new readers every day. I have many ideas for 2020 to continue to make this publication a unique place for word lovers. I think it’ll be great!
There is a good chance that you will find in this column some of the new writers who joined the publication this month. Keep an eye out!
I wish once again a very warm welcome to the new pens who published their first story on Scribe in November. Joliane Martel, Marianna Saver, Lora K Lucente, Mark A. Schrader, Thomas Plummer, Nicole Jiang, Jennifer Furner, Katia, Ayushi Goel, Carly Sutherland, Sonia Motwani, Sarah Stoltzfus Allen, Michael Keller, Erika Burkhalter, Lee Williams, Ana Martins, Marta Cano, Anel Ryan, Joanne Roche, Mora Mitchell, and E.M Pauling, welcome aboard!
Sometimes you may feel that your life is not interesting enough and that you have nothing exciting to write. I read an interesting article on this topic.
You do not have to experience death or destruction or agony to write. You simply have to care about something. Perhaps what you care about is joyful.

When you publish stories in the eyes of the world, you should expect your loved ones to read them. Jessica Lovejoy wrote a story about it. (…) But when we look at the benefits that writing about ourselves brings into our lives, I find that I’m okay with having people from my past read about me (…).
