I started working on my drafts yesterday! It felt liberating to start getting words on that blank screen.

Such good advice for newbies 😊 I'm planning an upcoming post about using your blog/newsletter/Substack as a workshop space for deeper writing down the road. All of my planned book projects have been drafted on my blogs. That's where I've workshopped ideas and processed and I want to encourage others to do the same πŸ˜€

This is fun!!

I'm curious--i totally understand how I make money on Medium--i don't understand how you make money on Substack besides the subscriber option?

I appreciate you discouraging me from being discouraged! I’m just getting set up and have found your series for newbies very helpful. The comment thread is great too as it helps add clarity about why I want to do this in the first place.

I am looking forward to writing to folks who choose to be here because they appreciate what I do. Also, I have been doing things the same old way for too many years and I simply need a change, shaking it up by moving to Substack will help me go deeper in my writing.

Thank you Ramona!
