I enjoy your daily blog filled with your worldly Snarkism.
My nitwit question:
When a partial/full is requested from an agent, is it proper to start the first page of the first chapter half way down the page? I think I read this somewhere, and as we all know, if it isn't blogged on your site, then it must be questioned.
Thank your for your enlightenment.
Well, I think it's a stupid waste of paper, but that's what the usual guidelines say to do, so do it. In a 36 chapter book it wastes 18 sheets of paper which annoys my green heart, but there are some things (like only printing on one side too) that aren't very green, but do make actual sense from a biz point of view (copying two sided paper is a total PITA...and SLOW).
Suck it up and do it.
