Lets keep the I in idiosyncrasies shall we? What I mean by that is that all of us have our own path through revision. Some of us revise as we go and some do it when we are completely finished our second or third draft. Some of us can't go forward unless the formatting is just so (guilty as charged) even though that is not something that needs to be attended to until one sends out the manuscript. We have developed our writing and revising idiosyncrasies and need to honour them. For instance I like to use the Canadian spelling or British spelling of many words (honour not honor - mum not mom - colour not color). It may be just the rebel child in me but I honour my desire to not Americanize my writing. I used to drive my local movie rental place mad as I would go in and take all the Canadian films out of the foreign film section (!) and bring them to the front desk where I would gesture at all the other films and say "these - all of these are foreign films - Star Wars and Superman and on and on..." They would smile and say under their breath to their comrades "crazy old bat" but I didn't care. I relish the idiosyncrasies that make people unique and revision is no time to standardize your weird wonderful ways.
What idiosyncrasies do you have in your revision (or writing) process?
