Damsel in De-stress. Please don’t quit so soon in the game. Lindsay Lonai Linegar is spot on. Sometimes you have to weed out all the penis, and golden stream articles and focus on what you really want to read.

We’re out there in abundance and many of us are writing for the love of telling stories or sharing our thoughts.

We ain’t making a damn dime, but crikey we’re having a blast.

In a few short months, I’ve made the acquaintance of several stellar writers who are the most supportive, genuine, real deal people I know.

I read every word you wrote, and I feel you so don’t give up and continue to write.

There are people on this platform who will be glad to read your work for the sake of reading, not judging whether or not you dangled a participle or forgot to use an Oxford comma correctly.
