I read on a writing advice forum that you should always do edits and rewrites focused on major elements, one at a time. So, you might do one rewrite/edit concentrating solely on one character at a time, or one focusing on the plot by itself, etc. You should also keep a folder with everything you edit out and make sure you make it clear where that material came from so you can play with it later on, just in case you realize there was something fantastic you really didn't want to lose that you snipped.
