Goodbye, manuscript! ๐Ÿ“š

I've been working on manually formatting a client's manuscript for two days, and I had to redo aย whole lotย of formatting work to finally get it right. (Because I have zero experience, but an editing client asked me to format.)

The table of contents wrecked me, though. It took about 9 hours, but I figured out what the issue was and both the paperback and ebook versions are properly formatted (and with chapter hyperlinks).

I feel confident enough to send it back to the client with his invoice for the edit + I'm going to add an extra formatting charge. (Because I'm practicing boundaries and assertiveness.)

(When I say I nearly wept on a video co-working call, it's not an exaggeration.)
