From the lecture (both files are MS Word documents):
(Structure in nonfiction writing is) like a puzzle where you have so many facts and scenes and you have to put them all together. Fiction writers can make new parts if they find they’re missing stuff along the way, but you need to work with whatever you can find, and that takes lots of practice – years of practice, in fact. I’m not expecting you to master it in this course, but I’d at least like you to try. And, failing that, at least try to identify the structure and its many parts in everything you read and watch from this point forward.
