    Hi Lisa, I came across your blog on the blog fiction links page. I like the individual voices you’ve used and the chatty style of posts. It’s also nice to see that even though you’ve made the writing accessible, you haven’t dumbed down the content.
    I’m trying something similar on a blog I started last week. I’ve been thinking about ways to improve it, like installing a gadget at the top of the blog where people can download/access the story so far? (I don’t know how to do this, but it couldn’t be too hard, could it?)
    The other thing I’ve been considering is trying to divide archive links to previous postings into chapter headings – like chapter 1, chapter 2, etc – otherwise it’s sometimes difficult to know where the story starts.

    I post as Pure Fiction, and in the blog I’m trying to stick to the format of a novel, aiming to give the blog 6 months to a year to get a first draft. The blog itself is very light and a little silly, which is a change from what I usually write. I’ve written one novel that a uk agent is currently trying to sell, and I’m working on a second.

    If you have any suggestions or comments I’d love to hear them.
