I’m so glad that *you* are one of the people that I do see in my feed on a somewhat regular basic (there are about 5 people that I see most often). I have been recommending your posts when I see them, because *I* think you are an amazing writer. I’m glad you told me you are taking a sort of hiatus, so I will not be scared you left.

Thanks for being part of the community I hope to belong to as I spend more and more time on Medium. I had to step away from Medium just as I was building relationships, because there was a manuscript pitching day on Twitter for diverse voices (racial, socioeconomically, and disability); I wanted to finish my book in time to meet that deadline. I did finish the book in time.

(Does a little happy dance).

But, I got back on Medium after all that dust settled and haven’t been able to find my peeps since (without always remembering their full names or ). My memory is pretty lousy. I listened to too much Pink Floyd all my life, if you know what I mean.

Now the hard part of editing, editing, editing. Right now, the book is with a professional editor, and I just have to wait patiently and see what happens. It is grueling to sit here wondering if she is verbally ripping to pieces or thinking, “Hmm, I don’t see many problems here.”

Thank you again for your kind supportive words!
