Who knew that vaping could help you become nauseous towards cigarette smells?

I probably need to reorganise my collections. 
 
Found this useful during the ongoing formatting of my 1st for print book. I found one particular MS Word trick useful... Instead of page breaks, use section headers ahead of each section or chapter. If you use the start on odd pages kind, it automatically starts new sections and chapters on odd pages (duh), and it also takes care of the blank (fully blank!) left page thing this guy talks about.

Sections do more, too. Once you have sections, manipulating the headers so that they don't appear above the chapter heading also becomes simple with the different on first page option. Once you get that (and the page number to appear on the first chapter page) set up, then subsequent chapters that are linked (same as) the first one inherit the editing, and off you go.

It took some time to get it done, but man, it looks sharp (or not "odd" as the blog author calls it).

Of course there's the ragged edge thing, which I already had taken care with justification, and the lead/front and trailing pages, which need different header/footing formatting (again, more section splits) to avoid the "rampant folios" (page numbering) the article mentions.
Book designer and author Joel Friedlander takes a look at pitfalls self-publishers face when doing their own book formatting, and explains how to avoid these mistakes in the first place.

Disappointing no USB Fans in stock. Weather so hot, but no fan to go with MiBanks.
