Standard Manuscript Format

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 5, 2014, 2:50 AM

Since I've had some downtime after the submission of the short story to Baen's contest, I looked at the Standard Manuscript Format template I had sitting here and decided to go ahead and address Dr. Mauser's issues with it.

I've reformatted the thing to go with standard US dictionary, Letter page size and a few other things. Unfortunately I have no idea about the line he's talking about - it might be a thing that doesn't accurately translate across from Libreoffice to MS Word.

I've uploaded the file to be downloaded as needed. If it doesn't quite suit your purposes, I hope it helps in creating a template suitable for you!

Good luck and have a pleasant time writing!
