While in the process of completing my latest book of short stories, I have had a slight diversion in the form of a new website (to me) called Medium.
You may or may not have heard of Medium, a social publishing platform available to readers and writers from all over the world. It gives readers an opportunity to find articles on a huge array of topics, including travel, psychology, sports, health, education, IT, fashion, music, humour, photography, and many others.
If you need to know more about any subject, it’s a great place to find information and personal viewpoints from a huge variety of experts and observationists.

Of course, I am a newbie and still finding my way around. So far, so good. I have read a number of helpful articles on how to navigate Medium. I published my first story, a five-minute read about how The Isolation Sex Stories came into being, gained a few followers and hit a reading rate of 80% (woohoo!) All within the space of 24 hours.
As with any new platform, it will take time to build, but it will be useful to be able to write more varied articles on subjects of my choosing. My two main subjects will be writing and photography, with occasional articles on my past 15+ years as an unpaid carer.
If you decide to take a look, please follow me @PetraKidd – you can join for free or the membership is only $5 per month.
