Catherine Nichols this is awesome to hear, I’m so glad this helped you! I always felt like I wanted to do the usual thing most people do and “help other people” and I feel like writing does just that for me. I never felt like I absolutely had to have a niche to help other people, and here is proof of that!
Someone once mentioned in an article that they thought of Medium as more of a brain dump and I’ve never been able to forget that. I kind of keep the same philosophy myself, and so far it’s been amazing all the many things I’ve been able to learn about myself and about writing! It’s like practice and I love it.
