Chapter One, Chapter Two, never centered?
Is font size for title larger than 12?
So, your contact details are double-spaced?
While I know black font I
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.
What type of line spacing should be used for rhymes? Specifically, couplets, or a quatrain.
Do you use italics for onomatopoeia words?
If you aren’t using a tab for paragraphing, what is the easiest way to indent as you go?
Still confused on how to indent if can’t use tab since every line is not the beginning of a paragraph
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.
How do I indicate a paragraph…sorry Im drawing a blnak
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
Drag the top marker over on the ruler bar at the top.
In a rhyming PB, with quatrains for example, what should I do if 1 of the 4 lines falls onto the next page?
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.
Oh thanks. I get it now….
On prose PBs, is it okay to add an extra line space between each paragraph?
If your chapters have titles in addition to the number, e.g., “Chapter One — The School,” how should they be formatted?
How do you add a subtitle to the file name?
When an art note is needed before the story text starts, is it okay for it to stand alone (not attached to a paragraph)?
When indicating a time or place, how is that formatted? (E.g. Six months earlier, or London, 1941)
