Standard Manuscript Format

I did a guest post on the standard manuscript format. Every writer should know this for when they have to turn in their MS to an agent or a publisher. Sure, there are a few who may differ from this format but not by much. And they are the minority. And just so you know, there were cases where agents/publishers who turned down a MS purely out of hating the format. It’s not right, but it does happen. If you’re interested in learning the widely accepted format, read the post on my writer friend, ImranSiddiq's blog and follow him on Twitter --> @Flickimp

  1. Very useful post, Sirra, thanks for sharing!

  2. You mean writer's don't research this first? I don't even start the first sentence till I've made sure my formatting is correct. It just makes it easier for me to reread what I'm writing as I go to.

  3. Thank you! Great info as usual
