Adding tension to your work and trimming it down: The Fire in Fiction by Donald Maass

Framing your plot with a structure: The Seven Basic Plots by Christopher Booker (with many thanks to George Galuschak)

Reducing your verbage: The 10% Solution by Ken Rand

Writing sex scenes: Stacia Kane’s 26-part series (Thanks to George and Miranda)
