The title's a little misleading if I'm honest, as I'm nowhere near ready for submitting, but a discussion in another thread regarding word processor software has got me thinking if I need to be doing anything different with my formatting, etc. The last thing I want is to finish this thing, and then discover I can't do anything with it because of formatting issues, etc. At the moment, I'm just plodding along, with no thoughts on formatting other than what works for me in terms of being able to read and follow things clearly. Perhaps if I detail my set-up, someone may be able to spot something that may cause problems when it comes to submitting. Software: OpenOffice Tabbing new paragraphs: Yes Font: Verdana Line-spacing: 1.5 Save format: .rtf Separate file for each chapter: Yes Speech quotes: Single Remember, all I'm concerned with right now, is whether or not I can safely trudge along in this way, until the time comes when I need to think about submitting. Thanks.
