Ok so Im only a few thousand words into my novel. Its always been a dream of mine to write a novel (not necessarily to publish one - I just want to write one first of all). I've dabbled about in short stories an awful lot. Obviously you would write your entire first draft and essentially rewrite the novel using the first draft as a rough guide. Would you then go over it again and again, is there a thing as too much editing. Just something I had been wondering.
