Revise/edit idea

Revising by hand is interesting but something I don't mind.  It helps me to connect to the story and see it from a different angle.  I've added scenes and taken out conversations that are extraneous.  I've never edited by hand before but it's one the best things that I've done.  Interestingly enough, the only reason I'm revising this way is because my laptop broke down and I don't have the moolah to replace it yet.  I tell ya though every manuscript should be viewed under this type of scruitiny.  Try it on your own works and see what you'll learn!!  :o)
