The Story Arc
Last year, one of my short stories appeared in Stupefying Stories and soon after they asked me to be a first reader of their submissions. As I gained valuable insight from this experience, I began to recognize common problems in the stories I read. When I commented on the most common one, lack of a story arc, to the editor, Bruce Bethke, he suggested I write a post about it for their blog. So this week, I'm guest blogging about story arcs for Stupefying Stories.
