I'm not sure when I first heard the term 'edited to death' but I remember when I first realized that I'd done it. All the voice was torn out of the first chapter.

Luckily I could rip out the offending chapter and splice the one scene I needed to chapter 2.

I always save the first draft - and these days I don't revise as much. I'll polish my mechanics until they shine, chase commas, 'ands' and 'thats' while hunting down repetitive phrases.
