A couple salient points from this article:

If you want it enough, you'll sacrifice a few things and create the time to write.

The ability to look at where your story is going wrong and offer advice should be treasured.

http://www.fictionfactor.com/guests/pulse.html

3 - Burying Your Novel's Message

http://www.fictionfactor.com/articles/subplots.html


And last, more for provoking thought than anything, I'm including this article:

How to Write Horror for Children

http://children.fictionfactor.com/articles/kidshorror.html

Mainly because I think some of the ideas carry over to writing for adults (and fanfic) as well.
