Writing a novel has been a life long dream of ours. After loosing my job and having time to do it we decided to do it while we had the chance. We wrote and we edited and we had friends beta read and we corrected and read again. Loaded it on micro soft word and are following smash words style guide trying to format. It's been 4 days of marathon reread combing our manuscript and we still aint got it right. Has any one here done this? It's frustrating but we seem to be making progress.
