    Font size

    Can anyone help me with font size for my manuscript/synopsis?
    I have it set at 12 now.... double spaced courier script.

    Twelve should be the correct font size for your manuscript(and I believe synopsis) when you're submitting it to an agent/publisher. Double spaced for the manuscript, but I'm not sure on the synopsis(I think you might single space it). Times New Roman or Courier New font is good.

    Nolan,

    It's an ongoing argument whether to use TNR or Courier. Before you send it out to an agent always check their submission guidelines at <http://www.agentquery.com> and, if they have a website, check there also. If they specify which font to use for your submission, then send it in that font.

    Font size 12 is the norm.

    For your synopsis format, again you need to decide. There are disagreements on that also, whether to single or double space a synopsis if it's longer than one page.

    Re: Font size

    Everything I've read has led me to believe that TNR is the new standard.

    Courier is a bit past its prime.

    Can I also say that I am tired of seeing this RightWriter crap pop up in every thread?

    More than tired, I put it up copied it to this thread as a joke. If this is what we should aspire to, time to pack up and go home.

    NB-Maybe now poster will quit.

    Re: Font size

    thanks everyone... i prefer to write in TNR, and was only really looking for a font size. My novel is 114,000 words, and i found it much easier to read and reread and reread and edit,edit,edit with TNR and a font size of 12. In this format my book runs 190 pages as opposed to 300+ with double spaced courier.

    By all means, when typing it up, do whatever works for you. I use font size 14, doublespaced when I'm first writing and editing. When getting ready to send out, I change to the requested format.
