What makes a story? Goldsmith, a journalist, editor, essayist and novelist, describes how writing her first book, a work of narrative nonfiction, revealed the ability of the story arcs that are embedded in everyday life to power and give shape to a compelling narrative. This lesson later influenced her work as a fiction writer and magazine writer and editor -- and ultimately helped her to understand and embrace the twists and turns of her life as a writer.
