Writing by hand–unless the house burns down or my dog get’s a hankering hunger for paper, it’ll be hard to lose these words.
Of course, I always do revisions by hand. It’s time consuming, but it’s also a different way of thinking–and for me, that “different way” is the only way to solve story and character problems.
Additionally, I think it’s CRITICAL to read a printed version of you manuscript. Editing on-screen can only take you so far.
Trust me: print your entire manuscript and just watch as revisions miraculously unfold before you.
(I also stand when I write by hand. This “desk” is actually a book shelf I converted so it’s top would reach just below my chest.)
