Not a single chapter in my YA Speculative Fiction manuscript will go untouched in this final round of revisions. Are they major character and plot edits? Not entirely, but each small tweak sends ripples through the the rest of the manuscript, meaning no chapter, no scene, no page can go unrevised. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't apprehensive, nervous that I will go too far in one direction or not pull back far enough on another. S'okay though. I got my revision emergency bag handy. The Contents: 5lbs of freshly ground coffee beans and Almond Joy coffee creamer, brand new toner for the laser printer, a rather large bag of M&M's, and a red pen. Oh yes . . . and a kick-ass writing partner who's head is always in the game. Not like mine :)
So for those of you who are also neck deep in revisions, tell me what gets you through the process, and I will add it to my bag of tricks.
