Yes, Ramona Grigg! Yes! If writers are here for the money, that is fine. I have no problem with that. Most are transparent. Admittedly, the income is a big deal to me because I have financial goals, too. Some are here to produce art. Plain and simple.

I used to make jewelry. Lovely hand crafted items using high quality stones and that took me hours to make. They were expensive. I would rather sell two $125 necklaces a month that 25 $10 dollar ones. I approach writing the same way.

It’s interesting what you say about people not taking Medium seriously. I have a friend who is a librarian who cannot stand self published authors. Perhaps the thought process is the same?
