So as soon as I realized I was almost done with the WIP, I went shopping for office supplies. I mean, who doesn't love shopping for paper and pens and all that good stuff? No one, that's who.
I picked up the below stuff, along with a new package of paper.
The one thing I forgot was a notebook, which I'll use to write out where, in specific scenes, I'll need to make changes.
Otherwise the pens are for line edits and any other writing I plan on doing with the revisions.
Except the purple pen. I gave that one to Twin to use as she acts as my first beta-but-also-more-like-an-alpha-reader person. She'll catch typos etc.
The highlighters are for, erm, highlighting things on the manuscript. Also I'm going to try highlighting changes in the notebook once they've been complete. As opposed to crossing them out, which would be my normal method.
The notecards are for making a list of scenes and playing around a bit. Mostly they'll be useful for figuring out where my chapter breaks should be and where I need additional scenes from other characters POV to break up the story a bit.
But the manuscript is marinating for awhile. So I'll just have to look at my pretty supplies and sigh.
Does anyone else feel the need to buy brand new supplies when you're starting a new project?
