  1. Hi Debby – to follow any blog – I rely on other people I know, and then the professionalism of the organisation – otherwise I don’t follow. I’ll definitely look at Kristin Lamb’s log line. While the Windows thing needs keeping an eye on …

    so thank you for these ideas – have a happy weekend and Thanksgiving – cheers Hilary


  2. Hi Debby – I did just comment … re blog following – only those I know via other bloggers or respect; I’ll definitely look at the log line posting; and Windows update – thanks for the shout out on this.

    Have a happy Thanksgiving and weekend – cheers Hilary


    1. Hi Hilary. Sorry if you were having trouble commenting, my blog has been glitchy this week. But I did get your first comment as well. In future, if you think your comment evaporated but a message comes up telling you it’s a duplicate, it means your first one was already taken. Helpful hint: When I am leaving lengthy comment on someone’s blog, before I hit ‘reply’ I copy my comment in case it didn’t go through I can just repaste it and try again. 🙂 xx


      1. Yes … I didn’t see the ‘duplicate message’ thing as I know about that – I may have been switched off … life here ain’t easy – but that’s the way it’s been doing and I get into a sidelane. So thanks for this … I used to do that – i.e. copying … but stopped as things seemed to settle – not always I know!!! Happy Thanksgiving … lovely and sunny here – no need to reply!


  3. Thanks Debbie, I’m always eager to learn more about this inexhaustible writing life we all live…Must get nose to the grindstone to finish my novel though. Good luck with whatever you’re working on. Cheers. x


  4. Great links. I was an editor before I became a writer. I think that helps my writing tremendously. But I ALWAYS need an outside editor to catch things I’m too close to find. As far as drafts, I can’t even count how many drafts I go through with each book – and even each STORY I write. xo


    1. I hear you on all counts Pam. And you know the old saying goes . . . even editors need editors. We’re much too close and familiar to our own work to sometimes be objective enough and tend to miss things with our own eyes. 🙂 ❤


  5. Big Microsoft Update?! Oh no. Thanks for the heads up, Debby. I have some prep to do! And thanks for the other links as well, especially Kristen’s log-line review. I haven’t spent much time with those. Happy Writing.


    1. Happy to share Diana, and glad you found something useful for yourself here too. The old logline biz can be as overwhelming, if not more than writing the blurb! 🙂 xx


  6. Wow, Debby. This post really packs some punch. The only article I’d already read was Hugh’s, and it is worthy of a revisit. Colleen’s offer of author interviews is very generous, and the articles on editing are very important. Everyone needs to read them. I enjoyed the final article about writing from those three famous writers. Their processes are quite interesting, but at least one thing they have in common is that they do it! Thanks so much for sharing these great finds.


  7. Sounds like there are a few good tips here you have shared Debby, I know from reading Hugh’s blog before how his great tips and advice have aided me, including how to back up my blog.. Which I now do on a regular basis..
    I will hope over to take a look..
    Thanks again Debby, And Hope you are having a good week my friend..
    Love and Peace my friend


    1. Thank you Sue. There’s something for everyone today I should think. And yes, I got your comment, lol. 🙂 Love and peace back at you Sue. ❤ xxxx


  8. Thanks for putting these tips and links in one blog post, Debby. You’re doing the hard work for us with this one. I especially liked reading the logline article. Some straightforward and good advice!


  9. Love the collection of valuable writing tips here, lady! I just read Hugh’s post, and I thought he nailed it. Going back to read a couple more of your shares…! Hope you’re having a wonderful, vibrant fall!
