On my first rewrite, I went through from beginning to end, deleting and adding to the story. Then I printed it out and had someone read through it for grammar and anything else. (She was nice enough to read through it several times, and will after I make changes again, which I hope means it is not too boring) Now I plan on working backwards. I have a notebook full of page number with corrections and suggestions. If I start on the last page and work backward, all the numbers in the notebook will remain true as the word count changes. Has anyone else attempted such a thing?
