I'm not usually good at making drafts and editing. But I do see its value.

Is it a stupid idea to rewrite an entire finished novel? Basically there are some major changes to the world I'm writing that I want to make. I don't really see how to do this easily by just editing. But at the same time, rewriting an entire novel is a lot of work (I must have poured hundreds of hours into the draft). Has anyone tried this? Is there a better way to substantively revise a story than rewriting it?
