This is not a matter of any "layout purists" dictating anything. When 
you paint yourself into a corner, it doesn't do any good to blame the 
paint, the brush, or the room. And what answer do you expect from 
another painter?

Perhaps it's better not to initially create left and right pages, but 
just individual ones, until you get the content set, then make your left 
and right page layout afterward. Maybe you can divide the work into 
sections and add blank pages as needed. As with many other things, there 
are many ways to use Scribus.
