What effect does this structure have on the reading experience?

Select ALL that apply.

The reading is much more fluent and easier to follow when the chapters are structured this way.


This creates a circular pattern of development, providing several opportunities for dramatic elements, such as foreshadowing, tension, and subplots.


The novella reads like several short stories, allowing the reader to skip around without losing the plot line.
