The blogging practice of cranking out daily posts to get viewers to see ads leads to the tendency to write simple already-said-a-million-times-and-ways articles. It takes time to create high-quality writing (I’ve heard. I’m not really much of a practitioner.) And since Medium is essentially a blogging platform it gets lots of self-focused and blog-style writing. And tons of writing about writing. You have to dig a little or get lucky to find high-quality writers on Medium. But they are here.

If you like fiction, I recommend Edd Jennings and A Maguire, to get you started. And you can find more creative writers at:
