You’ve got a good point, Gail. It is almost an incentive to not put stories behind a paywall if the ultimate goal is to have people read your stories. What disappoints me as a published writer is that I could have stories published in major publications and receive a larger readership. The idea of having all my work on one platform is an outstanding idea but now I’m not so sure. I was and perhaps still am (for what it’s worth) going to publish all of my work on Medium, hopeful (or delusional, depending on how you look at it).
