it seems that when we use form_for @story do |f| then Story has to be a RESTful resource and it has to be map.resources :stories in the routes.rb? can Story be not RESTful? Can it be a form for non-RESTful data?

"can Story be not RESTful? Can it be a form for non-RESTful data?" Sure. Keep in mind one of the Rails tenets: "convention over configuration". Take a look at the HTML generated by form_for in the various REST contexts (e.g. new, edit). *By default* it Does The Right Thing if you're using RESTful resources. But there's nothing to stop you from overriding the configuration, e.g.: form_for @order, :url => checkout_details_path, :method => :put do |f| and having a route to support it. dwh
