A roundup of story writing advice

Jane Friedman collects five years of posts from her guest authors on fiction writing, much of it applicable to non-fiction as well. Included are tips on developing story ideas and characters, working on plot and structure, using point-of-view, and building scenes. From writer/agent Paula Munier: "Narrative thrust provides momentum for a story; it’s the gas that fuels your story’s engine. You can also think of it as the magnet that pulls the reader through the story."
