No, we are not charging for Strings. Substack does insert messages, which we can't control, about pledging and supporting writers, and some Substack writers do charge for at least some of their content. Writers with a large following can earn a decent monthly income, much more than they could by simply freelancing. It's a good platform for writers.

Thanks, Lynn. Of course I remember meeting you. When I wrote the part about nine months, I wasn't intentionally alluding to pregrancy, but when I was reading over the essay I did think that someone might make that connection.
