How to write a paper

Bem, D. J. (2003) Writing the Empirical Journal Article. A version of this article appears in Darley, J. M., Zanna, M. P., & Roediger III, H. L. (Eds) (2003). The Compleat Academic: A Practical Guide for the Beginning Social Scientist, 2nd Edition. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association.

Turabian 6, 7 (note: you already read 6.1 and 6.2.1 and 6.2.2 so review them as needed)

The book "Style: Ten lessons in clarity & grace" by Joseph M. Williams is an excellent introduction to advanced topics in writing. It has an entire chapter on how to write more concisely which is especially valuable to anyone dealing with the 10 page conference paper limit (pp. 33-60).
