It is no easy thing to type a clean copy of a manuscript. I tinkered with formatting today. Using and adjusting Richard Polt’s template helped. I reformatted my digital document accordingly. Then comes setting the margins for the material page in the typewriter. Once the typing begins, it’s easy to make a mistake. The phone rings. You lose your concentration for a moment. You begin to type too quickly. This is definitely doable, but it will take time and care. I found it necessary to change my line-spacing on the computer to 1.15. Using Courier 11, I was able to approximate the spacing of my Olympia’s typeface. Using the doc as my source, I transcribe to the typewriter.
I’ll make a fresh attempt tomorrow.
