I was initially worried about doing these interviews remotely. I thought that without the context of the street the stories might lose their sense of immediacy and randomness. But the experiment has been quite a success. To my daughter today is a good day love mom poster. These remote interviews have been a real joy for me. It’s been great to connect even over video. The stories have been really beautiful, and the extra supply of photographs have added another dimension. So I’m looking forward to exploring this process even more. Thanks to everyone who’s submitted. We are reading them all. But it can sometimes be a puzzle to distill such rich narratives into short form. I do want to provide some guidance on what’s been working so far. Many of the strongest submissions have involved relationships. I think our voices tend to be most compelling when talking about other people.

And not just ‘why this person is great.’ But ‘what this person did, and how it impacted me.’ Bonus points for the crazy coincidence. The unexplainable event. The hilarious accident. The outsized personality. To my daughter today is a good day love mom poster. Several of the most recent submissions have featured these. But a story can be strong without a twist. It cannot be strong without a transformation. So tell me how you were changed. But more importantly, tell me who changed you. It always helps to include a photo. But strong writing is not a requirement. There’s no need to write three pages. And don’t worry about being a master storyteller. Just tell me what happened in two or three paragraphs.
