Getting fucked by Medium editors and policy is nothing new. I'm not concerned anymore. I don't fit the mold so I write to inform, entertain, sharing and for me and community with people like you.
I won't give them any other parts of my energy. To much else to think about and be concerned with.
When I wrote my piece it felt good and it touched a few people, all I can ask for. If I won it would've been a surprise and unexpected. Hopefully, I wrote well.
