"Ticket" is one of those stories that came out of reading a lot of non-fiction. There is just a wealth of amazing stories in the world, many of which are actually too unbelievable to put into a fictional piece. I find myself often commenting on this to Jared, pointing out facts that are happening in our lives that would seem too contrived if we were to put them in a piece of fiction.
Two people meet at a wedding and fall in love? It's been DONE.
A brave mother struggles to help her mentally disabled son? Like we haven't heard that one before.
A group of young, attractive people work in an office where they all happen to be friends? PLEASE!
But I'm getting off topic. "Ticket" is available for free download over at Hub Magazine. Go check it out! http://www.hubfiction.com/2009/07/issue-93/
