A professional author Ryan is not. While he’s passionate about storytelling and crafting his next rhyme, it’s ultimately a hobby that he does in his spare time (rhyme not intentional). Writing poetry allows him to understand the world around him and to explore his thoughts and feelings, similar to how others use a journal. Writing stories, on the other hand, is about escaping that same world, going on grand adventures and having a reasonable excuse to go office supply shopping when the fancy strikes.
