Happy Monday, WG2E-Land!
Time for a D. D. Scott Oopsie Daisy Report.
In other words, here’s a Techno Dunce mistake I made that thanks to my idiocy, you won’t make!
It’s a D. D. Scott “Do Not Try This at Home” kinda thing.
So, y’all know I’ve been working hard getting my next non-fiction book ready to release…
Part of the material I’ve written for that book comes from the blogs I’ve written right here on The WG2E.
Like any Great Techno Dunce would do, I simply copied-and-pasted those blogs into my Word Document for the Ebook version then began re-writing and updating from there.
After sending my 300-page manuscript to my superfab Format Guy Rob Siders of 52 Novels, I got a huge “Houston, we’ve got a problem” email from Rob.
Evidently, using copy-and-paste in that fashion from a WordPress Blog to a Word Document causes MAJOR formatting issues that make it sheer hell on your Format Guys and Gals.
Yep…a total Oopsie Daisy for sure!!!
So guess what?!
Now, I get to re-type the entire book into a brand new Word Document, so that it reads like a normal Ebook instead of all the crazy spacing and hidden format demons of a Blog.
Do Not Try This at Home!
It’s Your Turn, WG2E-Land: Let’s hear some of your Oopsie Daisies in the Indie Epublishing Process…by sharing your goofs, you’ll be helping all of us so we don’t make the same oopsies.
The Best of WG2E Oopsie Daisy Report Wishes — D. D. Scott
