I just published in, literally, a new medium for me: the website Medium.com. I stumbled upon the website some months ago, probably because one of my hundreds of Facebook friends linked to an article there. Ever since, I’ve been itching to try it out, and the stars finally aligned for me to do so (sorry about the astrology reference).
I have no idea how to gauge readership of a piece, so I’ll just have to post a bunch of links to it in all the usual social-media outposts and see what happens.
Since the event that inspired me to write the piece happens tomorrow (Wednesday, May 21), I had really wanted to publish this several days ago. However, I had a weekend stomach bug that made it difficult for me to think 1,500-word thoughts and make them semi-coherent.
Anyway, please feel free to check out my tale of a small town auctioning off its prized Norman Rockwell painting: https://medium.com/p/78f084c621b4. Enjoy!
