09:02 am - Argh!
So a few days ago I decided that I had sit on a story enough, and it was time to send it out. Since I have submitted a whole lot of nothing since 2012, I had to go and remind myself the specifics of standard manuscript formatting.

So far so good.

What I hadn't aken into account, though, was the fact that I no longer have MS word on this laptop, so the work had to be done with OpenOffice.

And here comes the ARGH!

I coundn't find ANYTHING. Margins, paragraphs, changes from italics to underline, everything was in some odd place that made no sense. I think I finally made it -work that would otherwise take me 5-10 mins tops- in well over an hour, after googling every little thing and snapping at both my bf and the cat.

I miss my old PC So.Very.Much.

I tried OpenOffice briefly, but replaced it with an old copy of Word 2000. Not all of it works, but it's definitely an improvement.

If I could locate any older copies of Word, I would... *sigh* At least, this is a temporary laptop until my own gets back from the shop.
