Fonts and styles


So, what font are you writing in? Type size? Double spaced, single? To tab or not to tab....


I'm going to be writing in "American Typewriter" size 20 font (so that about 250 words equals about a page....
Single spaced, and tabbed.

What about you guys?

I'm particular to writing in the standard manuscript form...tnr, 12, ds, with tab and headings. It makes me feel like it's one step closer to publish.

Minion Pro 12pt and single-spaced. And I always use a black font on a white background; I find it much easier to read than light on dark.

I sometimes change my font while writing if I get bored of the current one, but they're always fairly standard-looking serif fonts.

Courier New, size 12, 1,0 line spacing. :D I read that it's a good format for editing, so I'm forcing myself into the habit. ^^'
I suppose I'll edit it to something more enjoyable when I'm finished.

I'm writing in size 10 point and Times New Roman. Very boring, but it lets me focus more on the story than what the words look like on the page.

I do 12pt, TNR, single spaced. But I flip the page to layout mode and make two columns, so that my document looks like the pages of a book. For some reason it just makes more sense for me to write that way.

Oh, and always black text on white, but that's mostly because I use word and I'm too lazy to figure out if I can change it.

Courier New, 12 point, first line indent.

I'm using 1.5 line spacing right now, so I can see the flow better, but it'll be put to double before it goes off to the editor (a long time off, yet!)

I'm using DejaVu Serif, mostly because it's an opensource font that works on all my computers. XD

I'm in LSB, so I have a dark grey background with offwhite text, 1.5 spacing.
