Guys plz stick to what Cory said in Open post. This takes too much time and publishing goes over the deadline.

@ Coryn : Make a topic about this, discuss this and come to a conclusion, So we can include these in next Antho. I had told Cory to tell you to make a topic about this but I didn't see it happen so I asked Cory to post rules.

Everyone just follow the open post and create your pages. and submit them. This takes too much time that I'd expected.

I'm kind of confused for my script format story then, I ended up indenting anything that wasn't dialogue to make it easier to read, but I'm not sure if that's correct or not. I'm really regretting not writing this in novel format.

EDIT: So Hasith posted and now I'm not exactly understanding this. I guess I'll indent the first paragraph only? Ugh, script is a curse I tell you!

argh this is all wrong!

time for some standard MLA formatting
http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/

as for the page size are we expected to export our word documents into a pdf or jpeg file so accommodate the printing company or what?

as for hasith's comment... what did you expect when writers are told to change their formatting, along with file type and size restrictions?

Litt. Just forget the whole thing and stick with what Cory said in first post. xDD

If you don't understand what she says, then ask her to explain to part you didn't get.

@ hasith - co never told me to make a topic about this she just told me she would be making a topic about this. i'll make a different topic though so i can better explain things. and you can trust that it will start with the scanning of a book that was written in english and published in english so that there can be no question to what is the correct way.

so for the record. for this anthology just do as co says to.  its wrong but i'm tired of arguing this point for now. and remember that you should be single spacing everything. unless there is a scene change in which case you should make a single double space between the two scenes.

also would somebody please tell me if we're expected to format our stories into a picture form cause i still have no idea how to do that.

I see, well for my story there are no large change of scenes and so spacing isn't necessary for that part, so I simply indent the first paragraph and then perhaps change it into a picture file. Makes sense, even if it sounds questionable.

i still think there needs to be an indent at the beginning of every paragrpah...


as for picture files i think it would be easiest to make em into .pdf files

@ [aero] : simple. I'v only expected just everyone to follow what Coryclay said in OP and get your pages done according to it.

discuss what's right whats wrong in other topic which I asked Coryn to make. and It will has nothing to do with this issue. I want to get this publish as soon as possible. save all argument about formatting to this Topic which Coryn will make.

Btw, can anyone explain me what the Mangaraiders Anthology is in the first place? Or maybe redirect me to another topic? I read something about buying the Mangaraiders Anthology but... What is it?

well theres the regular MR anthology which has its own section as i think you know. which is an anthology for fully illustrated manga. this is for the writers anthology which is for those writers who either dont have an artist or would just also like to publish their stories in text form
