A dummy can help you to identify issues with a manuscript, and it can be used to help you market a manuscipt by forwarding it to agents and publishers.
I have found good sources of information about dummies, but I was never able to locate a Word document that I could use to create a dummy.
This document contains "Word objects" that can be edited to create a dummy. It saves me a tremendous amount of time.
Enjoy using it, but if you distribute it, please do not change it any way. I am wide open to suggestions for improvement, and I will be pleased to give you credit for any improvements that I make based on your input. Just send a revised version to me along with a note about the changes you made.
