BBC advice for writers

BBC News is our homepage on the computer. We like its news summaries and headlines--though we can't figure out where they are getting their weather forecasts for Prague!

"Partly sunny/cloudy" is a pretty good guess, but not a very helpful forecast.

Anyway, we like BBC. They have some interesting features on their website. Here's one I just found on writing. It's not dull, and it takes a different approach to writing than the dull, formulaic approach of academia. Take a look at it!
