Read through the scene and change

Alternatively, you could read through the scene and make edits as you go.

So keep your card nearby for constant consulting, then as you read, look for places to add any of the necessary changes and resulting ripples.

I’ll be honest with you all that sometimes I operate this way, sometimes I do the former. It really depends on how much I want to reread the entire manuscript again right now versus later on.

If I don’t want to reread it all again now, then I’ll go with option one: just adding and changing according to problem. But I only do that with the knowledge that I will be rereading the whole book again later for polishing and fine-tuning.
