You know a blog is good when you get back from an unplugged vacation and find yourself ignoring pressing emails to check what’s been recently posted. Here the blogs I just couldn’t wait to read after I returned from the beach:
Mystery Writing is Murder http://mysterywritingismurder.blogspot.com/
This mystery writer and mom always comes up with fantastic posts that deal with various aspects of writing – not just mystery writing. She’s also a terrific twitter-er. From her blog: “Author Elizabeth Spann Craig is a laptop wielding, mystery writing mom who metes out murder on the keyboard.”
Badluckdetective’s blog http://badluckdetective.wordpress.com/
This fantastic blog follows “Suzie Ivy” as, after a midlife crisis, she enrolls in the police academy and becomes an officer… and then a detective. Begin at the beginning of the blog and read through the entries from your computer chair if you can’t become a police officer yourself.
