It shows you what a manuscript should look like as well as the text itself being a guide on how to do the formatting and why, and I found it pretty useful last time I tried submitting somewhere.
Oh dear I didn't see this before I sent it in. Although I did put like, word count, my account name and my full name and it was on the first page. And the story started on the second page, should the rest really matter?

^ Same, Space. I didn't finish my short in time. I think I did it wrong, too . . . but it's all good fun and experience, so no matter.

Yeah... I was stuck between submitting two poems I'd written in the last hour while laying in the grass beside my friend, or sending in naked photo's of myself. The latter was a sure victory, no challenge there. In honor of gamesmanship, I opted to send in the poems I wrote yesterday.

Screw you. I wanted to see the naked pictures. Send them to me instead.

By the way, I sent my full name. As in family name too. Just so you know. I'm not so bright...
