Revision trick experiment
I do all of my editing online, but it seems like everyone I know was telling me to go old school. The collective advice seemed to be "print out your MS in a different font and size and suddenly you'll see everything in a whole new light."
I was skeptical (plus, going paperless is cool), but I decided to give it a try. And the results were...
Drum roll please...
MAGIC. Wow, it actually worked. Suddenly everything sounded wrong. The parts that seemed fine before were gushing blood. I'm calling this experiment a success.
Have you ever tried this method? What did you think?
