Formatting your work

If Andy Rooney were writing this blog entry, he would start by say, "Did you ever wonder how to poperly format a novel, essay or TV script"? I found a great reference book titled, Formatting and submitting your manuscript, by Jack and Glenda Neff, Don Prues - ISBN 0-89879-921-X.

Not only does this book show you by example how to format; Novels, Essays, Proposals, Screen plays, TV scripts, Poetry, Childrens books and greeting cards, but it shows you how to create a query letter to send out to publishers.

Chapter one opens with great advice, "before you write an article, you should sell it". Why spend the time, sometimes days, writing an article just to have an editor tell you it's not even close to what they wanted. Most editors want to provide input before the article is written. Sell the idea and listen to what feedback you get.

I hope you find this book as useful as I did.

-Ralph
