Thanks for reading and for commenting here — I appreciate the engagement! I was initially hopeful for engagement on Simily, but it definitely has been falling off lately. I’ve taken to posting my fiction on Simily first, then republishing it here. I’ve tried Vocal, but I find it incredibly frustrating. Perhaps the calls the Simily founders are doing will lead to meaningful change. In the meantime, I’ll continue to chronicle my experiences there. I’ve definitely enjoyed discovering your fiction.
