anthimeria: Open book, says "sometimes you reach what's realest by making believe" (Books)
[personal profile] anthimeria
Every writer I know approaches editing a little differently--some people blow through the rough draft and then painstakingly edit, while others edit as they go and end up with an almost-perfect draft eons later.

My question is: what is your personal approach when working on a long piece?

Short fiction (no matter the medium) is always more flexible because you're not dealing with very many pages or words.  But how do you deal with a 150k word novel, or a 90-page screenplay?  What do you consider a "draft?"  Any tips or tricks for keeping track of all the minutiae (plot changes, character development, that scene you moved from chapter three to chapter five)?
