I've got a bit of a milestone: Tonight I will publish my 600th short story on Substack in just under 19 months. The archive alone is worth the subscription, and if more subscribers head my way I can shoot for 600 more daily short stories. E Jean Carroll and hundreds of subscribers not as famous as E Jean will tell you I'm "brilliant." (I just think I'm pretty good.)

I loved reading about these milestones, and it just so happens I recently wrote about my own:


Next up for me on Substack is paying more attention to these writer round ups and the community of writers. This year has taught me (again) of the importance and benefits of staying committed to a writing practice.

My latest post is also a reflection on my first year of Substack!

I wrote about the things that changes between last Easter, when I sent out my first, very melancholy post and this Easter. I talked my year of finding happiness in both fulfillment and joy, on the difficulty and satisfaction of writing and the euphoria of attending a BTS concert! I'll link it below. Happy Monday! <3

Scribblers unite on SubStack.com - you have nothing to loose but old 'likes':

As much as we write - ignorance abounds;

As much as we innovate - chaos continues;

As much as we protest- the powerful prevail;

As much as they control - we must contend;

As much as they avoid - we must avow!

Co-substakers ==> keep on keeping on....

There are some valuable insights in this Roundup, thank you. If newer writers can benefit from active Substack writers and Substack Pro folk, so much the better.

* Surround yourself with great people, make it easy for them to get involved, and celebrate success together.

* Key takeaway: Do less and do better.

* Key takeaway: Teach yourself SEO.

You know what could improve Substack's SEO, an easy way to put today's date at the top of my issue. For long-term domain SEO, recency and traffic on Substack shows good progress.
