Advice on good storytelling from Pixar

We loved this post about good storytelling from the geniuses at Pixar.  Here are a few of our favorites, but check out the full list of 22 in the link below.

#7: Come up with your ending before you figure out your middle. Seriously. Endings are hard, get yours working up front.

#10: Pull apart the stories you like. What you like in them is a part of you; you've got to recognize it before you can use it.

#5: Simplify. Focus. Combine characters. Hop over detours. You'll feel like you're losing valuable stuff but it sets you free.
