  • One option - derived from the rewrite method I am using on my work - would be to take a scene at a time, analyse it, understand what it is trying to do, its purpose within the story, thensummarise that: very short sentences outlining the beats - actions, what is being said (or what is being implied through subtext), etc. Then, put the old version aside an rewrite just that scene to the plan.

    This way, your editing is largely the free-writing you like, but because you're doing it to a plan, you'll basically come up with something closer to what you want to say. And, hopefully, tighter.

    Of course, it might not work for you…
