Blog of the Day

Janice Hardy has a varied and interesting blog. My favorite feature is the Real Life Diagnostics. Each week, Janice takes a segment of a work in progress (around 250 words) and gives all of us a glimpse into her red-pen mind. She points out what she likes, what she doesn't like, suggests changes and through it all EXPLAINS why she does what she does. Each one is packed with great advice. Between Diagnostics, the blog is populated by other writing advice, most recently First Look at a First Draft caught my eye, and guest posts from other authors. I hope to be able to interview Janice about her blog in future, but in the meantime, check out her blog. It's a mine of information. You can also follow her on Twitter.
