At my writers group meeting on Sunday I outed myself as a bit of a formatting nerd. This had long been known to verterans of the group. I will reformat stories if I can’t read them and in my feedback link the submitter to Shunn’s manuscript formatting guide. I will lop heads off for the sin of not putting page numbers in headers or footers. But this weekend just passed I showed I even get obsessive about the nitty gritty stuff, like paragraphs.
Two people got feedback from me regarding paragraphs, one on how paragraphs can affect pacing and the other on stylistic use of paragraphs. So I made that the meeting takeaway. If you’re curious you can head over to the Vision Writers website where I made the post.
