Teresa Nielsen Hayden's "A simple four-item formula for turning story into fiction " (via BoingBoing ). Charlie Jane Anders' "The 10 types of writer's block and how to overcome them ", which led me to io9 's trove of writing advice (tailored for science fiction and fantasy writing, but relevant to other types of fiction). I'll keep updating this post as and when I come across new links.
