Die, formatting, die!

I am pleased to report I am able to beta read a friend’s novel which I had been anticipating for ages. Ages!! Why doesn’t he write faster? I used to think.

Anyways, so yar.

Apparently, the Word doc I got was ported from Scrivener. Useful for plotting, lousy for publishing. What is with the extra carriage returns, the weird column breaks, and the words randomly dropped into tables?

I’m putting it in pretty format as I go. OTOH, I should just read the PDF and be happy. I can annotate the PDF and that gets him results faster.

Fine, I’ll PDF. But I’m looking at you, Scrivener. I don’t like your type. Not one bit.
