Lessons from Pixar

Via Kottke, Emma Coats tweeted lessons she learned at work.  Here are a few:

#7: Come up with your ending before you figure out your middle. Seriously. Endings are hard, get yours working up front.#13: Give your characters opinions. Passive/malleable might seem likable to you as you write, but it’s poison to the audience.#19: Coincidences to get characters into trouble are great; coincidences to get them out of it are cheating.
