The dreaded revisions

 I've been managing to avoid doing revisions on one of my qualifying papers lately but I finally tackled it:

I enjoy doing the old school, post-it note, visual way of organizing revisions for a major paper. The small canvas of the post-it note requires me to boil down my points to concise statements & I love the flexibility of reorganizing the points or color-coding themes. It almost make re-writing feel creative. Almost. 

What's your method for writing or re-writing?
