Formatting is like following a recipe found in a grandmother's recipe book. The rule is to follow it to the letter. If it has been tested multiple times then it is bound to be the right way. There is a calming and reassuring aspect of following traditions. It works.

The rules are simple:

Use black, 12-point, Times New Roman as the font.

Set your margins to 1 inch on all sides.

Set alignment to left justified.

Use a single space after periods.

Use double-spaced line spacing.

Indent all paragraphs by 0.5 inches, and don't hit tab or space to indent.

Use " " as speech marks and ' ' for quotes or inner thoughts

Inner thoughts should be written in italics.
