For those who are editing or have edited one or more drafts: how do you go about revising your novel?
I am talking structural edit here. For the most part, I've already read through my entire novel and worked out what needs to be changed. I currently have multiple plot threads for my novel that need revising, and each thread has x number of plot points that I need to add, delete, or edit in the novel.
What I'm having trouble with is selecting a method to do the actual changes:
a) Edit the entire book chronologically, taking into account all the threads as I move forward scene by scene, or
b) Edit the book multiple times, once per plot thread, or
c) Some other method/combination?
Writers: how did you revise your books, and why did your method work for you?
