Writing as Craft

What makes a story a good story and why? I cannot say I have all the answers, but I do think about it, and read about it, and write about it a lot. I want to share what works for me, and I’d love to hear about what works for you. As always, please feel free to share.


I’ll continue to update the list as I write more posts.
