I ordered a new printer two days ago.
It arrived today.
And I am OVER THE MOON.
I LOVE this thing.
It's a LASER printer!! I spent the last hour setting it up.
Nothing extravagant (it was dirt cheap), and it can't do more than print black and white, but it's SO fast for such a tiny little thing, and will have 400 pages sitting in front of me in no time at all AND I'll still have ink leftover! Which is more than I can say for my four year old Inkjet :)
I've been debating about this for over a year now. I really wasn't sure, but I eventually decided that at some point I would need to print out my MS for final editing and revisions (to send to agents?! Obviously that's quite a ways off)... I've done about 4 rounds of minor editing on the computer - finishing up the 5th round now-- but my old printer just wouldn't make the cut.
I can't wait to hold these pages in my hands! It somehow makes everything feel more real (or is that just me being overly excited again?). I actually want to take my pen and physically mark up those lines... see those scratches and side notes in my own handwriting.
Yeah, I need to get out more ;)
What's your take on this? Do you print out your MS for revisions or do you complete all your edits on the computer?
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
