Elizabeth, if you add captions, you may want to put those in square brackets. It is a common practice for editors to do so. Strictly speaking the word Chapter should be square-bracketed as well if added by the editors like you and I, but in total honesty, I have never bracketed it myself, whenever I added it to a book.

I too am a stealthy adder of words. Mostly I just add the word "chapter" but sometimes I add the word "(caption)" to indicate a description where the description is just plunked down in the middle of text. Also, I make sure the text ends at the end of the sentence by moving parts of sentences when the description breaks up a text in the middle of a sentence. Hope that makes sense. When I am doing it it makes more sense than when I am describing doing it. E.
