Putting my Faith Back in The Writing Community.

Thank you to all my followers and members of my group.

Recently I had become disheartened with the writing community. It appeared some writers, were taking for themselves and giving nothing back. I wrote a couple of moaning posts about it.

Well, I am not too big to say I was wrong. Very wrong.

On Tuesday morning, I read a heartfelt post from one of my favourite writers Whit Jackson. It spoke about being broke and what that did to a person. I have known Whit since I started writing on Medium and have always loved her work. If you follower her on other social media, you see what an amazing family she has.

After reading this post, I decided to try and help in a small way. I asked my followers and members of my group to read and clap.

Claps cost us as writers nothing. Yet can make a huge difference to some writers.

The response excelled even my expectations.

Every one of you helped, through clapping and support. Many of us had been in a similar position, so could relate.

As I write this post the post is up to 850 claps. Which I hope has helped, with a couple of extra cents at the end of the month.

Of course, the post could always do with more. So please click and clap.

A massive thank you.

To each one of you, who took five minutes to read and clap.

It proves that although, sometimes we can all be guilty of a little self-centred behaviour. When the need arises, we band together and help each other.

There is no better community than the writer’s community.
