Publishing on Medium

Is It Therapy?

Should we write for ourselves, write for others, or write for ourselves and hope others read it? I write because I love stories and want to create them. I hope to create a story one day that moves someone else, the way I've been moved by stories before (I'm looking at you Red Rising).

I post to Medium, because I am neurotic, and I enjoy writing about the random topics that pop in my head when I'm in the shower or driving the car. Thoughts that show up in my journal that spur other thoughts that I then obsessively think about until I've written about it and put it out there for the world, just to get it out of my head. Thoughts that run on and on like the previous sentence.
