@Ralph: We should add a Scrivener tag and ask them for sponsoring. Lauren can write the tag info. :)

Try to be as specific as you can. If you know the birds, name them (seagulls is my guess here).

comment What methods can I use to revise my writing?
@David: Lauren's method isn't bound on a special software. Yes, she is a Scrivener fan (in the meanwhile I guess she is paid by them), but you can use any software. You can even print it and do it on paper. Using Latex you can store every chapter/section in a separate file. It should be possible to create a meta file where you can define the order of these chapters and rearrange them. If you have any specific problem doing this, please name it, so we can answer your question properly.

comment What methods can I use to revise my writing?
When putting a bounty on a question, please clarify why do you think the question is not answered yet. For me, Lauren Ipsum's suggestion is the way to go. You do not even have the problem Kate mentions (starting too early with the draft), because you can iterate through your document again and again, rearranging the sections. What is missing for you?

comment How to obtain a thoughtful critique of a job application cover letter?
I disagree, that the cover letter is not the first thing they read. The HR people I know read it first for exactly the thing you mention: filtering. You can glance faster over a cover letter than over a resume. Why care about people who cannot get the cover letter right? +1 for the rest of your post.
