Hi everyone! I'm formatting my manuscript to have ready once I send out my first queries, but I'm unsure about something. I have several mini-chapters of short flashbacks (usually 1000-1500 words each) spread throughout the story. In my original document, I had them titled with the date on which they occurred and no chapter number, since they supplemented the story but did not take place within the main plot.
However, I can't figure out how to do this in the MS. Should I count them as normal chapters and give them numbers as well as their "names"? None of the other chapters have names, so that would feel a bit awkward. But I don't know if it's acceptable to just write "April 18, 2012" at the start of a chapter, rather than a number.
Any thoughts, suggestions or advice would be tremendously appreciated!
