In this two-hour class, you’ll learn how to work with styles in Microsoft Word. Why do you need styles? When you make the transition to using Word as a true word processing system rather than a glorified typewriter, you will:
- decrease the time you spend formatting, giving you more time to write;
- create uniform heading, subheadings, and text throughout your document;
- learn how to navigate around your document easily and quickly;
- decrease the time you spending looking for scenes in your document;
- prepare your document for editors and beta readers;
- move scenes and chapters without using cut and paste;
- create an automatic table of contents with correct page numbers every time.
What authors are saying…
“Lisa is a master at making the complicated simple, even for those of us with spotty tech skills. In one short webinar and an even shorter private coaching, Lisa taught me how to use Styles. I’m the author of three published books, two ghostwritten books, and dozens of stories and articles and I had zero idea that without using Styles I was writing and formatting the hard way. I’ve now completed a ghostwriting project using Styles and WOW, what a difference. It’s so much easier not to have to remember whether to use bold or what font size to use in chapter titles. Super easy. I’ll never go back to my old way of writing and formatting books.” —Betsy Graziani Fasbinder
“Lisa’s Styles class was a GAME CHANGER for me. I’ve been writing for over 20 years and have spent millions of hours searching through my documents to find where I wanted to insert or remove content. Now that my new working manuscript rests in styles, it literally takes me seconds to find the chapter, add a detail to include in the manuscript, and then keep writing. I don’t get frustrated or worried about remembering what I wanted to include in the story – it’s right there when I get to it.” —Amy Peele
