Best Writing Advice on the Web

My mission in starting this blog was to create a resource library, of sorts, for myself *buffs nails on chest* because I'm a collector. But when it came time to make sense of my writing advice collection I was overwhelmed. Where to start?

I set about pooling all the writerly advice that spoke to me into a giant vault so I could swim in it, like this:

My vault can be accessed any time via the resource tab of my blog.

For those writers who demand immediate gratification, here's some highlights:

1. From PIXAR, 22 Tips on Story Telling
