Medium created the game (platform) back in 2012. They invited writers to play and make moves on the platform. As time went by, they learned that some of the rules of the game needed updating.

So they changed the rules.

V.I.P.

And those letters will probably make you feel good, too.

V is for Value.

The key when you write is to add value to a reader’s life. Whether you teach or tell stories, your readers are looking for something. Entertainment. A better way to make money. A way to solve a problem or get rid of some pain.

I is for Intrigue.

Sounds straight of a spy novel, huh?

Cliffhangers aren’t just for stories.

Drop clues to show us what’s ahead. If they’re attractive, they’re like a magnet drawing the reader to the last word.

P is for Personal.

Think of your reader as a friend, not a number on your stats board.

Remember, you’re writing for humans. SEO is great, but even that is fed by humans looking for things. It’s better to imagine someone reading your work than it is to imagine what it looks like in print.

That’s it. Now go out and be a Medium VIP!
