Scissors and a Stapler
I moved my books to Google Docs, so I can access them from anywhere, which comes in handy for at school or when I'm traveling and while I don't have my desktop computer, there's a computer handy with internet access.
I took the chapter markers out.
BAD IDEA. Even if it is all in one document, it's still smarter to have all the chapters marked out. So, with a printed version of the story, I went back and divided it up by chapters again.
Chapters were the most brilliant thing ever invented, I tell you. They help writers organize the story.
So what I did, instead of just marking where one chapter ended and and the next started, I cut the page. After this, I stapled all of the chapter together and numbered it. While I was re-plotting, I was able to redo everything by chapter.
I replotted two more chapters from where I was. Not much progress, but better than nothing.
