to the unvarnished, uncluttered, undiluted truth
Kathy, Your message brightened a rainy Monday! I'll be reading three flash pieces at Live from the Library. Two of them are entertaining, one is written with conviction. It's personal, unvarnished and difficult to read without crying. Thanks for the timely advice. Xxo
I just watched the short film, and wow--all three of those stories are just incredible. Pairing them with music and voiceover works so well.
Excellent recommendations, Kathy! Congratulations on such a grand milestone on Substack! We're lucky to be connected with you. Also thank you for sharing the film. I adore your piece. Immensely powerful!
Love this as always, Kathy - finding the truth in the story, having the courage to say something powerful - those are the pieces that resonate and contain hidden depths.

Funny. My post from today definitely accomplishes this: https://michaelmohr.substack.com/p/ego-and-self-promotion-on-substack
good work here :) super nice to read!
A wonderful read filled with some great actionable points. And certainly, the significance of being able to write without self-censorship (for the ack of a better word) takes real practice.
Great inspiration. I really appreciate the various perspectives in the video. Sometimes, too often, the narratives in my head get stuck in the amber of what should be. Have you ever noticed the conundrum of freedom: the desire for it? The responsibility of it? Boldness is sometimes heavy. Thank you.
Especially love the quote from Dillard ❤️
