Microsoft Word is annoying me today

Not that the fault belongs to Microsoft Word. No, the fault is mine.

I meant to get started writing about an hour ago, but I started messing with the former book in the novella series so I could update the back matter (my list of books, my bio, blah blah), and I realized my styles are not matching up, which made me want to create a new style set (again, not like I don’t already have a ton of them), and then I ended up looking up the Microsoft Office help pages so I could see if I’m missing something in my understanding of styles and style sets and templates (oh, I definitely am, even though I know enough to have created about 10 style sets of my own).

This is all for Word 2007. I toy with the idea of upgrading, but  I haven’t because I’m pretty happy with this version.

In the meantime, I’ve wasted a lot of good writing time on something that would take very little time to do, if I could figure out where I need to start to combine the quick styles I definitely need into one new style set, so I can just delete most of the rest of them.

Let’s see, it’s 9:58 a.m. and I’m going to see if I can get this done within 10 minutes before I drive myself crazy with it.

And later…

10:31 a.m. to be exact. I’ve got a new style set for my ebooks and I think it’s going to work. I’ve made a note to delete the old style sets (not the print style sets yet) once I’m sure I’m happy with this new set.

Not 10 minutes but close enough! :D
