Thanks, Jack. Great input! The 5 minute mark does seem to be the barrier on Medium. It probably is good in that it forces you to make your point succinctly and not repeat yourself. But is tough for fiction. I just submitted a story to LitUp that had a 1000 word limit. It was tough to edit down and get everything in I wanted to. But I got it to 999 words. LOL!
