Narrative writing

Found this indirectly in one of the comments on a Poynter story about narrative writing. They’re talking about newspapers and magazines, but I liked the idea that this might apply to blogs also.

Anyway, the Gangrey collects some of these stories. It is worth a look.

Took me a second to figure out its format — the links under the authors’ names and sometimes the links within the posts send you to the full-length narrative story. The title of the post is the permalink, but it is not the full-length version of the story. Fooled me (if this was obvious to you, chalk it up to a lack of coffee intake on my part today), but it is worth checking out.

I liked this one, and I’ve never been to L.A. (again click on the author’s name for the full story, or the link I just provided).
