Farida sent me this YouTube video. Ira Glass, of "This American Life" talks about how to build a story. This is # 3 of his videos--I believe there are 4 so far. You'll be able to see the links to them at the end of this video. Even though Ira Glass is a radio guy, what he talks about still hold true for any art form. It's good stuff. Thank you, Farida!
