Announcing My New Publication: ‘Glass Half Full’

When I first joined Medium earlier this year, I had a few writing goals for 2020.

  1. Write 50 articles
  2. Gain 1000 followers

Well…ten days ago I received the honor of my 1000th follower. And this article you are reading is my 50th.

I did it. Three months ahead of schedule. It’s been a long road — any writer can attest that sometimes writing feels like wading upstream during a hurricane.

It has taken a dedication (perhaps an addiction) to the craft of writing, plenty of research, and far too many Americanos to get to this milestone. I am proud of the success I have been able to achieve.

As a reward of sorts, I have decided to finally launch my dream publication: Glass Half Full. Unlike other publications, which may sort themselves by topic, this publication is defined by its outlook.

Recent world events have upturned the entire world, mine included. While it can be so difficult to be positive towards the future, it is one of the most important steps any one person can make. It’s a step I’d like to take with the overall writing community, together.

If you enjoy my articles and my writing, I encourage you to follow this space. I have plenty of initiatives and ideas for the rest of the year including pledges and writing prompts. This is a baby publication, yes. But every publication starts somewhere.

I am focused on building a community that supports each other, buttresses reality with an optimistic outlook, and contributes good into the world.
