Thank you so much for sharing this story with me! It was a good long read, but so much of it resonated with me. I recently published a narrative essay with The Maine Review and the section about feeling insecure and worried about putting our work out there, really spoke to me.

When joining Medium a few weeks ago I had planned to leave my narrative essays for literary journals and magazines and focus on satire while writing on Medium but now I am rethinking that.

Thank you again for reaching out and sharing this!
