UPDATE: I've had lots of you ask me what my process is and what all the post-its are etc ... so I came up with a plan. Stay tuned for more deets next week!
I watched Eclipse the other day.
And when I was done watching it ... I couldn't even come up with anything witty to tweet. So I just went off to work on my revisions.
Working on revisions reminded me about something I love: office supplies. Specifically, I really like post-it notes. Like, really. For the last round of revisions on one of my projects, I was doing some work around 5 specific points. Lucky me, I had 5 post-it note colors. Woohoo!
After some bonding with my printed out manuscript, during which I learned that when they say post-it notes are "super sticky" they're not jok

This was a new process for me, but I really liked it. And it worked well to keep my thoughts organized by key points or characters. Color-coding works, people!
So what's your revision process? Any easy-peasy tips to make things go smooth and easy? Yeah, I was just joking about that last part.
