Hi Per, novelists write in scenes initially and organise these into chapters at some point that makes sense to them. We divide scenes up within a chapter by putting in a symbol to indicate a new scene is beginning. Often this is three *** (that’s the default or most common scene divider used). A scene can be a few lines up to 1600 words. Anything bigger would probably get split up in an edit. A scene is generally written in one characters POV in one location and one point in time and a new scene denotes a change to one or more of those. In terms of formats to get it out to word, yes Times Roman or Courier and single, one point five or double spaced options with centered or left aligned chapter headings. Page numbers in the footer centered or right aligned. Name of author and the title of the work in the header, right aligned. Title page should include title, subtitle, authors name cantered in the middle of the page and contact details in the bottom left hand corner. Page breaks between chapters, ideally chapters start one third down the page. Scene breaks within chapters as noted above. This would give the standard manuscript format for submission to a publisher or editor. But could be simplified if that’s too much layout work. The formatting can be done in word or another program designed for it, it’s more about ensuring the information is captured and the difference between a chapter heading, text and scenes can be detected. Does that help? cheers Cathy
