I made this analysis for purposes of seeing how my posting in the new NARRATIVE publication Fantastic Femme Fiction compared to posting in my own personal journal on Narrative plus cross-posting to STEEM.

For a little background, I "own" (which is actually a 12-month lease) the niche (same as TAG here on STEEM) of FLASH FICTION. I paid $75 for the 12-month lease and as "owner" I earn 6% of everything that is earned by posts tagged to my niche. NOTE: In seven months I've earned $12.68 from the lease.

NARRATIVE recently introduced "Publications" and you have to apply to be a writer for each publication. Anything you write while under this agreement is owned by that publisher and you cannot post it yourself anywhere else. To top it off, whatever your post earns, the publisher gets an agreed-upon percentage of your earnings.

So let's proceed to the analysis. I'm choosing three posts from my personal journal and three posts that I submitted to Fantastic Femme Fiction, sticking to strictly Flash Fiction stories for the comparison. I'm running this to see potential earnings from the posts.

First, the Fantastic Femme Fiction posts:
