This site has taken an unfortunate and, well, boring turn. (Oh, that's delightful. "Boring turn." Look up alternate definitions for "boring.") Whereas I once penned pithy comments about the day's events, I have been reduced to chronicling the steps required to bring yet another book to the print-on-demand market.
Actually, I have come full circle. I hope that doesn't mean anything significant.
The latest? Page creep. I have downloaded a template from CreateSpace and used it to set up my book in a 6x9 trim size. I review my Word document to make sure the formatting and pagination are correct, and then I upload it to CreateSpace. After conversion, I review what will be the file used to generate printed books. And the pagination is off.
A chapter whose final, two paragraphs appear on page 144 in my Word document pushes itself onto page 145 in CreateSpace. This means the next chapter begins on page 146.
Obviously, I cannot have this.
Oh, it's not obvious? Permit me to explain. In my world, chapters must all start on odd-numbered pages.
Aislinn suggests I need to let it go. This would be the same Aislinn who will rip up a perfectly good drawing if she is unsatisfied with the third eyelash on the left eye. Uh-huh. Let it go, indeed.
So, back to the user forum I will go. It's not easy being me.
