    Here is an interesting article by Gav Thorpe of Warhammer fame. One piece of advice that he gives which I've not seen elsewhere is to know how the story ends. I've never really thought about this, but yes, I've never written anything without a reasonable idea of who gets to the end and what that means for the story. And certainly knowing what the end is like helps you to work towards that end, and in doing so to create a coherent middle.

    Here's Jeff Vandermeer of Wonderbook fame with some writing tips. They're interesting, because they relate more to the right kind of mindset and approach than the usual advice.
