The Uglier Side of the Travel Writing Game
William Georgiades, I think I love you. And I don't use that word liberally. But, ok, today I am. Maybe this compliment is better, I want to write like you. I say this soley based on your Media Bistro essay about your tragic, yet way too common, experience with the Conde Nast editor.
