Please make the following in red clear for me.
Every story has a beginning, a middle, and an end. There's a narrative arc to every tale that allows the listener to be brought along and participate in the emotional transaction that takes place in the telling.
Does "narrative arc" refer to a narrative structure that looks like an arc (a bow), the peak point being the middle of the story? And does "transaction" mean "interaction" in the context?
