Just a quickie to put up some links to interesting posts I read this week.
Nathan Bransford had a great post on crafting a mystery. He says that all books have a mystery- what will happen next. This is a great post to help work the element of suspense into your WIP so readers can't put it down.
Rachelle Gardner had an excellent post on the overuse of exclamation points and italics in writing. Read, then go check your manuscript. I bet you'll be surprised.
