Revision Round #1 - Decrap-ification (in progress)
- Kill some recycled trees and print the first draft.
- Read it and take copious notes all over the page.
- Make all the changes from step #2.
As a side note, I'm debating whether to combine step #3 of this revision round with Revision Round #2 - Incorporating feedback. That's where I take all the critiques I've received so far and make those changes as well. I've got mixed feelings. Combining will actually make round #2 easier, because the critiques are based on the first draft. The critiques won't always sync up with a revised draft. On the other hand, I need to give my own concerns priority over my critique partners.
Procrastination on this decision sounds like a good idea.
