I trust my gut with Medium. If it’s magical listicle thinking written in that sizzling Mediumese, I’m out. But there have been well written, well thought-out articles I’ve enjoyed. Plus, my sense of humor is a little off the beaten path. People getting brow-beaten? Not my thing unless they’ve done something to deserve a verbal beatdown. BS? I’ve got no need for that. At all. Situational humor gets me everytime. I grew up on Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Burnett, Bob Newhart, Good Times, M*A*S*H, Cheers, etc. … yet I write about serious stuff on here. Go figure.
It’ll be interesting to see how my next book, a work of fiction (a madcap rom-com) will go over.
You’re good at parsing people’s words and intentions from what I can tell. And you’re far more patient than I am with people I interpret as difficult.
