comment How to make travel scenes interesting without adding needless plot diversions?
@foggyone - +1, Good words of caution. The campfire scene can work though, if the writer wants to expose the characters through dialog instead of needless action (as StrixVaria refers to it). The discussions of the day are simply a catalyst to introduce each character's tendencies. The actual events discussed are not so important, thus no need to show them.

comment How much sex is allowed in a non-romance novel?
StrixVaria: I agree with your answer, but am often surprised by the high levels of explicit sex that makes it into mainstream fiction.

comment Third-person objective in action scene
Omniscient is fine for any purpose because you don't have to show more than you want, it just gives you the option. Third person limited is also fine to use and even preferable in many cases. Didn't mean to exclude third limited in my answer.
