General Advice:

A good-looking manuscript never sold a rotten story; but I am convinced that if an editor has two marginally acceptable manuscripts on hand, he or she will keep the one that is easiest to read. A professionally presented manuscript encourages the editor to regard you as a professional and to take your story seriously -- and you can't ask for more than that!
