I recently posted about my intentions to put together a second anthology for charity – tentatively titled Edge Of Oblivion 2 – and in that post I mentioned the topic of formatting. One of the biggest challenges in dealing with a large group of writers is dealing with some of the different ways they format their documents.
Well, here’s some pointers (in the link) as to how to get a nice clean document. It’s understandable, I suppose that writers all have little things they’ve been taught to do, that they do out of habit. But in this day and age, you can’t afford to format like you used to. I’ve made every mistake in the book when it comes to formatting in the past, however these days I think I do a pretty good job.
It’s all about simplicity. So read on and see what you can take from it.
