Question When you Write...

When you write/type on the computer, what font, font size, spacing and document type do you use?

I'm curious to know, no real reason why.

What I use-
Font: Leelawadee
Size: 12
Spacing: triple spaced, no extra space between paragraphs
Document: Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Works Word

I always use Times New Roman, 12 font, single spaced with 1 inch margins. I like the simple, yet intriguing style of Times New Roman that adds a professional feel. W

Me too. :3 But it changes with each character POV– for my one protagonist, it's that, for the other, it's Veranda.

I used to write in Apple Chancery, 'cause I thought it looked cool, but then I realized that it was impossible to read without getting a headache. X_X

Sometimes I type in Courier, especially if it's a screenplay or script.
I usually just use whatever the default font and sizing is.

Font: depends on the story.... my Nanowrimo one is Times New Roman but the beginning/quotation-ish parts in each chapter are Courier New. (read it to see what i mean ^_^)
Spacing: Always 1.5
I use Google Docs. but my sis always changes random things in my stories -_-

Now I can't even use the insult 'I hope your grave is written with comic sans' to you! >:[
Uh...Eras Light, size 11, Microsoft Word 2010. Though I kind of like Courier New.

Font: Depends on the story. On one, I'm using Thonburi. On another, I'm using Cambria. On poems, I use many fonts. I never DARE use comic sans. (I've had a test with Comic Sans at school... I guess it's easiest for kids to read according to Vsauce) I'm in love with fonts. I use Minecraftia for chatroom conversations that occasionally appear in my book Soulmates. (I know... too many parentheses and TMI)
Size: 11-12
Spacing: 1 space for paragraphs, 2 for poems... I like my space.
Document: iPad: Office 365 app (Word 2007) Laptop: Word 2010.

So... yep!

Microsoft Office Word 2003.
Times New Roman, size 12.
Single-spaced(umm, is that what it's called? o_e).

...

pretty boring actually.

I just open the program and start writing, I don't even change the font or anything. XD

Times New Roman, size 12, zoomed in up at 125%, usually. I make it look so it's all squashed up—it makes it look like I write more. :3
