I have a confession to make.
Today I'm doing something I've never done before.
I'm printing out my entire novel so that I can edit in hard copy.
Considering this is my third attempt at a novel, trying out this editing strategy is long overdue.
I waited so long because I'm slightly stingy (printer ink is expensive!) and I hate the idea of sacrificing practically a whole tree for the sake of a novel that may never be published.
But this time I'm determined to be more HOPEFUL (read: confident) when beginning my querying process. And I'm also determined to make this manuscript the best it can be, even if that means spending some extra money on printer ink this month.
I know a lot of you already print out your manuscripts in those final stages of editing. But tell me, did you ever have qualms about this method? Has it worked well for you? Do any of you still choose the paperless route?
