The header is simply to make sure if the ms gets dropped in the middle of the floor it can be put together in order and so it doesn’t accidentally get mixed up with someone else’s ms. This shows the correct way to do it: http://www.shunn.net/format/novel.html What I can’t figure out (James, I’m sure you know this) is how the heck do you get the header to say page 1 when it’s actually page 2? Mine always says page 2 and I just pretend I didn’t notice. LOL

There’s probably a simple way to do it, but I just prepare the title page separately, primarily because I don’t even use a title page until after the novel is finished, polished, printed, and ready to mail.
