Word™ is Your Friend
There are two things I hear–or see–all the time. One is that people “hate” Word, but the other is that people don’t know how to use Word. Most of these intersect or overlap. Generally, I find this out when it’s time to format their manuscripts for print or e-book. That’s when I see the warts. And all.
- Word is the standard. Other programs are nothing but trouble, compatibility-wise. Get over it.
- If you stop fighting it, you might be able to learn to use it well. (Have you ever heard the expression ‘Shoveling sh!t against the tide’? Think about that.)
- It’s not so hard.
- Do it already.
- If you need help, call me.
Here’s why: When it comes time to format your manuscript for anything, forget about content. It’s the form that will cost you the most money. For this I have advice–one word (Word)–STYLES.
As for the rest, we can talk about that.
