sue Leopold

oops!
sue Leopold
01:05:01
While I know black text is used for the entire ms, I have a question about a nonfiction ms with side bar notes. A writer friend suggested a smaller font size—11 pt and gray text. This may not be quite right.
kathyhjermstad
01:06:53
What type of line spacing should be used for rhymes? Specifically, couplets, or a quatrain.

Do you use italics for onomatopoeia words?
susanglick
01:26:55
If you aren’t using a tab for paragraphing, what is the easiest way to indent as you go?
mcgregorbookpro
01:29:49
Still confused on how to indent if can’t use tab since every line is not the beginning of a paragraph
Stephanie
01:30:37
mcgregorbookpro, doing it the way she showed will only indent the first line of any given paragraph, not every line. So you would be fine.
mcgregorbookpro
01:31:50
How do I indicate a paragraph…sorry Im drawing a blnak
mcgregorbookpro
01:32:01
Blank
rebeccaevans
01:32:09
yes she only typed a few gobbelty gook words on each line, if she had continued and typed a whole PP then it would have shown you that all the lines after the first line were NOT indented. Try it, :) you’ll see it works excellently and it saves you lots of time
Stephanie
01:32:26
Drag the top marker over on the ruler bar at the top.
kathyhjermstad
01:33:12
In a rhyming PB, with quatrains for example, what should I do if 1 of the 4 lines falls onto the next page?
rebeccaevans
01:33:16
each paragraph will end with a hard return. this will signal the program that the new line will be a new Paragraph and it will then indent the next line after a hard return.
mcgregorbookpro
01:35:10
Oh thanks. I get it now….
kathyhjermstad
01:37:01
On prose PBs, is it okay to add an extra line space between each paragraph?
susanschader
01:38:23
If your chapters have titles in addition to the number, e.g., “Chapter One — The School,” how should they be formatted?
kathyhjermstad
01:42:08
How do you add a subtitle to the file name?
kathyhjermstad
01:48:28
When an art note is needed before the story text starts, is it okay for it to stand alone (not attached to a paragraph)?
samcameron
01:49:24
When indicating a time or place, how is that formatted? (E.g. Six months earlier, or London, 1941)
