Well Hello!


This is my old blog, which I no longer update. Feel free to browse around old posts and such, but the much more recent version of my ramblings are to be found at MarilynAnneCampbell.com

I think I need to get out more...

You know you've been spending too much time editing drafts and opening rejection letters when an easier-to-read font fills you with absolute glee.

Over on Robert J. Sawyer's website (the same place I found answers to a baffling tax question) I came across his advice to always use Dark Courier for submissions.

Maybe I'm the last writer on the block to know about this, but boy oh boy was I excited. I had to go interrupt Steve's dinner-making to show off my before and after pages. Now, if only the lit mag editors get out as little as I do, I should be set...

  1. I'm a total font geek. I always read the back pages of those books that include info on what font(s) was used in its publication. I know, I need a life, but if it has to do with the printed word, I'm all over it.

    Besides, I always thought that the particular font you choose for a publication does contribute significantly to its style and tone.

    Cheers,
    Marjorie

  2. *giggle!* Isn't Dark Courier a great font? I found out about it on Absolute Write Water Cooler.
