    The Bride is a writer and editor. (The pay is lousy, but the clients insult her.) She purchased a copy of The Subversive Copy Editor, ©2009 Carol Saller, Cloth ISBN: 9780226734248, Paper ISBN: 9780226734255, and ran across this:

    "Years ago a colleague showed me a book manuscript that consisted of 350 Microsoft Word documents; the author had started a new file each time he reached the bottom of a page."

    Quoted for critical and recommendation purposes.

    Perhaps the author agreed with the principle of not putting all one's eggs in the same basket?
    (But 350 files seems more than un oeuf...)

    Must have the old Typewriter method of using a computer, one MUST insert a new piece of paper at the end of each page.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
