Up-and-coming writers often seem to think that the script size is not so important when submitting their novel to publishing houses and advertising companies. That' s right in the end, but frahlings and editors are overwhelmed with more scripts than they can imagine. Every daily they receive several hundred unasked novel scripts - so many that they call the Mount of Submission the'Slush Stack'.
That' s why, and because many of the books are not very good in the mud, they often look for excuses to go on to the next one. First and foremost, the simplest apology is that the script doesn't look pro. Do not give either the frahlings or the publisher a good cause to refuse your script without even having read it.
Giving yourself the best opportunity to make it look neat, representative and professionally by using the right script you can. The A4 is the default for new entries. Nearly all Frahlinguren and publishing houses are expecting to receive Microsoft Word files (.doc or.docx). Beneath the name of the novel is your name, i.e. the name under which the novel is to be released.
The number of words in the script, round to the next thousand. Start the renumbering with the first page of the novel itself. The text of the novel itself should follow the following rules: Allows the publisher or frahling to take note.
The headline should be placed at the top right of the page so that the frahling or publisher can find their place in the work. It'?s the name of your novel. Your name]/[title of the novel]/[page number]. Begin each new section on a new page. Allow room around the heading of the chapters, two or three rows above and below it is okay.
This is often only a few empty words in a completed novel, but in a script you should make a certain mark so that the editor knows that there is an intentional leap, not a continuation or reformatting one. The purpose of this is to allow the frahling or publisher to add any number of notices.
It' simple to duplicate your script in any text editor, but be sure to review it to make sure it hasn't spoiled any other formatter. Utilize a simple typeface that anyone who reads your novel has on their computer. Apply the same typeface throughout the entire script.
Time New Roman in point 12 is the standard option, but any easily legible fonts should be reasonable. The bold type is OK for the novel name and section titles. Various character formats. In case your novel needs an uncommon typeface, you can talk to your author after he has been approved for publishing.
Today, most frahlingurs and publishing houses have switched to e-entries and often copy them to their children - so that any "unusual" formating can be dropped anyway. Manuscripts should always end with a line End, so that the frahling or publisher knows that nothing has disappeared from the work.
This is what the front page of my novel A Death in the March 2008 was like when I entered my novel A Death in the March 2008 at Transworld Publishing and the Terry Pratchett Prize: Here is the opening page, which shows how the page headers, the section heading, the distance, the indentation of paragraphs and a scenery snap. guesswork was accepted, which contributed to A King being reread in the mornings and released by Transworld.
