Revision has begun

I did it! I finished the first draft of my 265-page novel, took a breath, had some excellent champagne, and the next day, began revising. It took a year to draft it; it will take that long to revise it, probably. Naturally, I don't want to embark on this journey without companions. Here are some friendly advisers I've found to hold my hand and brave the adventure by my side:

How to Revise a Novel (Holly Lisle)

Some Thoughts on Revising A Novel

Revision Checklist (Nathan Bransford)

Finish Your Novel in Four Simple Steps

These are just so I'll remember where I put them. But if you have a big stack of printed paper you'd like to mess around with, you might find these links useful too.
