One of the benefits of writing on Medium is that you can actually build your book on this platform. There is an accumulative effect as you drip out content. It adds up. And before you know it, you’ve written a chapter or more.
UNDERSTAND YOUR AUDIENCE
Writing this way allows you to understand your audience. You understand what kind of stories they want to hear. And your audience will give you instant feedback via claps, highlights, shares, and comments.
TEST AND TRY NEW THINGS
I like to call Medium my personal laboratory. Writing on Medium allows you to test and try new things. How did one story perform over another? If you’re developing characters for a book, pay attention to your readers’ reactions.
HONE YOUR CRAFT

The are many opportunities available on Medium. One is sharing in publications. Publications are groups sometimes centered around a specific topic. Others, like ILLUMINATION, are made up of a wide range of topics.
