I'm a programmer and fledgling (or shall I say, "aspiring") writer. Looking to sharpen my quill and broaden my knowledge.

Wow, thanks for this. I especially like that last point you made. I tend to design software solutions in the same way: start with the basic concept and jot down any thoughts that come to mind, then just follow the trail of ideas. Almost like a mind-map brainstorm. I'll definitely use these tips.
