Critique by Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy
WIP Diagnostics is a weekly column that studies a snippet of a work in progress for specific issues. Readers are encouraged to send in work with questions, and we diagnose it on the site. It’s part critique, part example, and designed to help the submitter as well as anyone else having a similar problem.
If you’re interested in submitting to WIP Diagnostics, please check out these guidelines.
