Helene Young (on Writing Novels in Australia)

So, what does a structural edit do? It ensures the foundations of the story are strong and true. It looks at the basic premise, the conflicts, the number of points of view, the setting, pacing, and the story arc. It’s the point when scenes can be retold in a different POV to strengthen the reader’s connection or more scenes can be added to show another dimension of the characters’ conflict.
