There is no way a goofy, single chapter of my fiction is going to be featured in the Medium Featured section. Even so, I copied your altered screenshot and will hang it on my wall as proof that I am now a famous writer who writes big ideas and important stories.

Nice try, Shapiro. But I’m not buying it.
