Then maybe print out one chapter and give that a go editing on paper before you commit to hundreds of sheets of paper. Some people use a big iPad + "pencil" and a good PDF app for annotation instead of a massive stack of paper, but as an amateur author, I can't justify that expense. .

If you imagine that a second draft can be created simply by sitting down and starting on page one to polish every line, stop.

Everyone who sets out to write a novel knows they need a first draft, although they don't really know what that is, so they write a beginning and an ending and fill up the space in between, and declare: my first draft done! In reality, what they probably have is a lot of words, some characters – who are now known to the writer as people, and some arcs: character and story (or narrative, if you like).
