comment How do I successfully structure a long fiction piece?
Hah, for a place holder ending in my current work I used: Come to the dark side, princess. Never! Witch. We have cookies. N... what kind?

If you can change the background color, that helps too. Red is good for spelling type errors.

Reading it backwards does help. another is to use a different medium or device, reading on my iPod touch is different enough to catch things.

comment How Do you Stave Off Boredom While Writing?
I am so totally different. I might get the last line, of the story and the characters and then have to backtrack through it all to get to a story.

comment Self Editing tips/tricks
This works for me, from Times to Courier is one way, I added a layer to it be changing the background color. I learned from architecture that Blue is good for creativity and red is good for spell-checking, so I write on a blue screen and edit on red.
