Writer Ian Stansel Visits Wabash  
 
Is this a story? Does it have a narrative arc? Does it satisfy in the way that a story is supposed to satisfy? The first novels were an autobiography or a found diary. There had to be some excuse for it to exist. It wasn’t until later where writers really said, ‘No, we can just write stories. We don’t have to make excuses for there to be a narrative.’ I don’t see them as tricks. If they are a way into the story you want to tell, then go for it.
