  1. Wow, Debby, this post is loaded. I’ll leave it open and read it tomorrow or the following day. I’m in Portland, OR, watch my granddaughter tomorrow because the Daycare is closed tomorrow.

    Thank you very much, ❤


    1. Thanks Stevie. And sooooooooo glad to see you managed to be able to finally comment. Did you find it easier or did you sweat, determined to keep trying? Lol 🙂 xx


  2. OK… I had to read this post twice! So much fun stuff. I still can’t see where to use the fonts, other than photoshop or a similar program. Of course, on the WordPress.com blogs, we’re restricted to the fonts they provide us. However, if you subscribe to Canva at Work, you can upload 100 different fonts, which is pretty nice. I’m still hunting for a book cover program I can use on the Mac. In that case, those fonts would work as long as you can import them into whatever program you’re using. I’ve put this post in “Pocket.” Thanks, Sis. ❤


    1. Thanks so much Sis. Glad you found some helpful articles here and I appreciate you sharing your own experience with fonts. As far as Natalie’s downloads go, perhaps you should ask her how she works with them. Now you have me curious to learn how we can download those fonts from Canva? ❤


  3. There’s always so much to read that it’s helpful to come across posts like this one that point us to the “must read” content. Thanks for sharing these links to writing tips! I had read Natalie’s already but the others are new to me. Happy weekend, Debby!


    1. Thanks so much Christy. I know there’s so much information out in cyber world but I do collect posts I think are essential for other writers to have in their arsenal and once or twice a month I share them in one post. 🙂 xx


  4. Great tips and you’re right about bookmarking this post. Particularly liked Anne R. Allen and Ruth Harris The Secret Power of the Delete Button. Less is more. Have a wonderful Sunday, Debby. 🙂


    1. Lol thanks Pam. If you have a file with Pocket or Evernote, that’s a great place to file articles to go back to when we actually need them. 🙂 So glad you managed to comment here without the gremlin gate guards LOL ❤


    1. I have no doubts you will find some of these links handy. I read a lot of articles and newsletters then compile the ones I feel will be beneficial to my writing friends. I’m sure you will find yourself referring back to them at some point. ❤
