Writing Discoveries: Pixar Story Rules (One version)

Pixar. Say the name and story after story jumps to mind: Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles, just to name a few of my favorites. How do you go about creating timeless, universal tales like these?

Emma Coats, a Pixar story artist, tweets story advice and encouragement she’s gleaned from her experiences. You can follow her on Twitter (@lawnrocket). The Pixar Touch has collected 22 of  Coats’ story-writing rules on their blog. (I’m in love with #19: Coincidences to get characters into trouble are great; coincidences to get them out of it are cheating.)
