"The Writer’s Voice” is a multi-blog, multi-agent contest hosted by Brenda Drake, Mónica Bustamante Wagner, Elizabeth Briggs, and Krista Van Dolzer.

Another post because this is an awesome discussion on story structure that can help a panster as well
"Every novel has structure, whether you outline it or pants it, and stories have followed a basic structure since people started telling them. It’s familiar and comfortable for readers, and helps them lose themselves in the tale."
