but that’s no reason to get discouraged. If you truly love to write, write here for the right reasons which are; for the love of it, and for the benefits, but most importantly, write because this is an amazing and thoughtful idea of a person who cares about writers.

Belinda, this is an excellent article. You encapsulated our fears, hopes, longings, and doubts so well. I agree with your reasons to write and how that is the most important thing.

Thank you for sharing your experience and I am glad that my article helped you feel comfortable writing on Medium.
