I find it easier to spot my mistakes when I read my work from a different media. I recently uploaded my manuscript to my Kindle which was very easy once I discovered a couple of tricks. Here’s how I did it.
STEP ONE – clear formatting
Copy document into a new file.
Highlight complete document (Control +A)
Single line space whole document
Change font to <Times New Roman> 12 point
Then click on <FORMAT>
Choose <Styles & Formatting>
Choose <Clear> to clear all formatting
Make sure there are no tabs.
STEP TWO – First line indents
At <Alignment> select <left>
At <Special> select <1st line> by <0.5>
Obviously make sure you then <Save>
It sounds tricky but it’s really very easy.
By email obviously send it to whatever your Kindle is called.
In Subject just type the word CONVERT
Then attach your newly formatted document and send it.
Sometimes it comes through to the Kindle quickly, other times it takes a while.
