  1. Great post! I just paid a fantastic editor for two rounds of edits. I don’t regret a penny – or the agonizing hours spent revising.

    1. Congrats on that Marian. Welcome to the world of publishing. I consider everything after writing first draft, publishing. 🙂

  2. Really good article, Deb. Kristen Lamb and log lines–I’m clicking over.

    1. Something for everyone! 🙂

  3. Useful as always Debby.. thanks for finding them all… hugs ♥

    1. Thanks Sal. I like to collect the best of the week I come across then compile. 🙂 <3

  4. 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

    1. So glad I could interest you with something here Hilary. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you too! <3

  5. 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!

  6. 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

    1. Thanks Joy. So glad if I helped out. I think you’ll enjoy the logline one for sure. 🙂 x

  7. Thanks again and always for all the great tips you’ve collected and shared!

    1. Most welcome John. I hope you find a few useful. 🙂 x

  8. Wow! Thanks, Sis. This post includes so many helpful tips and sites. Thanks for all your hard work. <3

    1. Glad you found them useful. I bookmark the goodies when I come across them and compile at the end of the week. <3

  9. A very useful post, thank you! I’ll be taking a look at a few of these links 🙂

    xx

        xx

        1. Thanks Hugh <3

  11. Thank you Deb for this list of worth reading Posts, I am hopping over to read a few. have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Most welcome Balroop. Something for everyone here. 🙂 x

  12. Thanks for these tips, Debby.

    1. Happy to share Stevie 🙂 x

  13. 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. 🙂 <3

  14. 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

  15. Very helpful tips here, Debby. Thank you!

    1. Something for everyone here Cynthia, glad you found them helpful. 🙂

  16. 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.

    1. So glad you enjoyed these articles Norah. I hope to see you featured at Colleen’s one day! 🙂 x

  17. Thanks for these links, Debby. Very helpful.

    1. Glad you found them helpful Robbie. 🙂
