Laura!!! You’re amazing!
And I so relate! I do the same thing where I try to find the “best” ways of organizing things, like revisions. Oh my gosh, yes, I’ve done that myself. When I first started writing, I have specific revision sweeps that I’d use color coded markers and index cards to help me with my notes. (I love color coding everything.) But then my own self-editor kicked in and didn’t like anything that I had meticulously organized. Ugh. And every book is different, which means that my organizational steps might change. So, that is so great of you for figuring out that you need a little bit of flexibility to test things out! You’re a super star!
