Nice to see you’re following writers who break rules every day, Michael. I’m not sure this is satire—I’m not even sure there are rules. It still surprises me—considering we’re able to post without editorial boards—that writing here lacks personality. Even more surprising are the writers being held up as unique. Well, more power to Medium to having this slap-on-the-wrist piece listed as satire but, unfortunately, it’s fact. Enjoy the comments. Some dogs like being beaten.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
