comment How do I successfully structure a long fiction piece?
I have tremendous trouble with endings myself. I "ended" my first novel by having the Spanish Inquisition arrive. Unexpectedly, of course. I can easily come up with a fun external conflict. Internal ones are more trouble for me.

comment Has anyone tried “pair writing” before and been published?
What I've found is that my pair and I develop a consistent pair style--consistent at least for the course of the story or article.
