  1. For Better Tension: Story Arcs Within Story Arcs

    "When you want to give a sense of closure to an episode within a larger story, the larger story has an arc, and the episode has an arc. Each arc is defined by a question (in the broad sense of something that creates suspense), and that question starts the arc. The arc ends when the question is fully answered, or occasionally when it's determined that it's unanswerable (for instance, what we thought was the problem was really just a misdirection for a worse problem)."
