Another Book Off To The Publisher

When you are writing online your format is different than when you are having a book published off line whether that is self publishing or having a publisher doing that for you.

Most people use Microsoft Word to write documents and the default page size is the 8 1/2 X 11.  If you also want to be published, decide which size you are going to have as a finished book and set your page size accordingly before you begin.  If you do this when you start you will not have to go back and transfer your information to a smaller size later if you decide you want to have a published copy of your information. This way you can use the content on or offline and do that more easily.

It is exciting to see your writing come to a finished product you can hold in your hand.  Something that for many is a long process.  It is actually quite easy with the tools we have available to us today so I want to encourage you to press toward that goal and break through any blocks you might encounter.  Even if you only have 1 copy on your shelf, it is a very gratifying experience to hold that book in your hand.
