formtatting Q

Postby InkyWa » Sat Sep 10, 2011 1:49 pm

Is there a recommended formatting for the entries?

I'm presuming 1" margins, double-spaced, no space between paragraphs, indenting first line of new paragraphs, times new roman 12pt font-- that kind of thing.

Let me know if I'm way off there, otherwise I'll stick with that. :)

Thanks!!

Lynn, as long as it's in a Word document, I'm fine with however it arrives. :D

We're very easy going when it comes to Page Turner entries, but we actually prefer them to be single spaced rather than double, with a double space between paragraphs. That's because we aren't actually making edit notes or comments in the actual document.

Even so, it's not a big deal.

Great :) Thanks Deb!

I didn't figure it was very strict but it makes a difference as to how many pages a first chapter is if it's single or double-spaced. (Helps me know if my chapter is short or long, LOL.)

Thanks.

Lynn's point about chapter one submissions length possibly being too short is a good question. My first chapter is 4 1/2 pages double spaced. Is it too short? (Sorry for being a pest, Deb. Can you tell I'm working on polishing my submission? :)

Hi Johnna. In the rules, we say if a first chapter is very short (up to four pages), then a second chapter can be submitted. You would definitely be okay to submit a second chapter.

Rather off topic here, but I notice you said "we" like.... Are you back to having a team of judges instead of just you, Deb?

Amy, I do the initial selection, then get input for the final winners. That's been the way for a while.
