Over at Women on Writing, there is a wonderful piece on how to focus your writing. I love tangible tips and charts, but that is just me :)

I recall that a couple of years ago I was fixated on becoming a creative non-fiction writer. I went and saw Lee Gutkind, the creative non-fiction guru, speak at the Texas Book Festival and I started reading his how-to books. I have since let that fall by the wayside as my writing has developed, but I still think about it from time to time and wonder if it is something to explore.

Tables and charts and planning and... uhg! That almost turned into proper work for a moment there. Not that it isn't, but no way am I going to be quite that focussed at any point in the near future.

It definitely doesn't work for everyone, I agree. I don't know that I'd use it for a novel but for short nonfiction articles.
