I learned some interesting things about Word this week, and I’m grumpy about it. I’m the kind of gal who only learns things out of necessity. Fortunately for my brain there is plenty of necessity. I learned about Sections in a document (Snooze!) and I learned about image resolution and conversion from Word to CreateSpace. I managed not to gouge out my eyes.
But I learned it and I think I have my manuscript cleaned up enough to pass the review. The Interior Reviewer is loading now and…the rassafrakin thing doesn’t like the image on page 44…still. Ugh! If you see a Toshiba laptop launching into orbit, you’ll know whose it is.
My advice to you writers: don’t learn it unless you need to. It’s all useless information that will be outdated in ten minutes anyway. The programs are designed, and rightfully so, to do all the ugly work for you. The level of complexity only compounds after that.
Now I’m going to mess with images again. Ugh!
Soon it will be all over and I can start smashing my head into my keyboard over promoting instead of formatting.
