This brought a smile on an otherwise dreary morning (darn autoimmune flares!).

Medium reading is my escape, and I must admit — following mostly other writers, it’s refreshing to see something in my feed about delights in reading amidst all the writing about writing!

But I agree, as writers, it’s nice to take a break from our own heads and get into the minds of other storytellers. I would argue it’s essential.

And yes, it’s a really nice feeling when someone spends that much time reading you. With so many options, it can often feel crowded around here. But for those 25 minutes, you feel like you really made a connection.
