Putting your Work Together as a Collection/Manuscript

Poets and Writery types:
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received about putting together a manuscript? I think back to Chris Abani telling me:

If you write fiction, how do you set your chapters up? How do you tell the story? Is it linear? Think about short story collections, screenplays and novels.
