Quite randomly, a man came up to Ryan and handed him this yesterday. He let me share.

Telling a story people want to read.

“That’s the beautiful thing about writing… It’s endless.” So said my shuttle driver this morning between my hotel and the Orlando International Airport. He’d asked me how I’d ended up choosing to live in New York when my family lives in California. A short bit of small talk about geography and the weather later, a […]
