This week's topic:
I'm going with revising, because they definitely do not require the same things. :D
1.) My printed manuscript -- I cannot do serious revisions without a hard copy of my MS.
2.) Colored pens -- I use a different color pen for different types of comments.
3.) Colored post-it flags -- They coordinate with my colored pens. ;) It's a system.
4.) Sweet tarts -- Just because they're delicious.
5.) Quiet -- When I write, I do better around noise. I like to write in restaurants particularly because of the snatches of conversation, gestures, and general atmosphere seem to seep into my writing, making it richer. But when I revise I need my full attention focused on the task at hand.
What about you? What do you need when revising?
