Love this. The era we live in makes it impossible to know when or how the skill of longform storytelling will be most useful, but it would be a tragedy if no one had the skill at all. So it's incumbent upon the people who have both the desire and willingness to cultivate it to do so, with no expectation of compensation or recognition, other than the quiet, private satisfaction of developing a skill that, in some ineffable way, matters to the universe.

Congratulations on 1 year! Everything you write about in this post certainly resonates with me and I've come to similar conclusions. Ultimately it's the meditative practice of doing the work every day, every week, every year that is the reward. Success is sustaining your love for doing the work. I look forward to reading your contribution to the story challenge.
