Hello Tiffany:

I'm not sure what you mean by "setup" - are you talking about page layout: margins, justification, page numbering, etc.?

I assume you are. This site might help:


(You will have to cut and paste as this site does not support hyperlinks).

Good luck with your writing!

I can answer questions about the elements of fiction and non-fiction writing: how to get started, writing techniques, re-writing, etc. I will NOT write for you, do critiques except from my website at http://pygmypress.com, or give you ideas. I will not answer home-or-schoolwork questions in any category. If English is your second language, please say so, and I will make an exception. Please submit no more than one or two questions at once, as I tend to go into detail in my answers.
