It’s pretty accurate, or at least has been at times. Still is though, I’ve gotten to a place where I just don’t allow to think about the money factor anymore. I lock most of my stories because not only is that the direction medium has clearly gone in — but frankly I work too hard to not potentially make decent money off each and every story I write, with the exception of the few I don’t lock.
I have a ton of free stories non members can read. I’d hope though, that my locked stories would give non members incentive to join, rather than only read my free ones.
But all that aside, the short answer to your question is yes.
Thanks so much for reading and a response that made me think.
And for thinking of me and someone as gifted as Michaelangelo.
