Friends Read for Free
On Medium.com, you can write on any topic your heart desires, and attract some curious readers. You also get access to some pretty fine writing by other authors. If you opt for a subscription, Medium charges $5 per month and splits the pot at the end of the month among writers with page reads. I've enjoyed being part of this community for many years.
You don't need a subscription to read my stories, though. Medium allows me to share my stories with family and friends via a "free friends link" to every story I publish.
Here's access to all of my writing there. Read as much as you like. You can always check out other writers' stories –– and it's hard not to –– but without these "insiders" links, you're limited to 5 free reads (of any author) per month on the platform.
Remember, all of my stories are free to read, as long as you want access. I've categorized them and put them on a slick page to visit any time you want. And I'll be updating this area of the website as I publish on Medium.
