Novel Draft Done, Attempting Ground-up Re-Write

Gear Pile (from Make Magazine)
Finally finished FERAL CITY – THE OCCIDENTAL/IST/ISM – A CLOUD ACROSS THE FACE OF THE SUN novel I was working on, but I have decided to rip the thing apart and rebuild it.

    I’ve often found it profitable to completely retype a manuscript, especially in early stages of rewriting. I’m weighing whether when I make the move from Draft 7 to Draft 8 of my novel whether I should do another retype job. After all, it’s only 86K words.

    Thanks for the advice – that’s pretty much what I had in mind. Am thinking a lot about form and content lately and wondering how to get the two to match…
