I've never written a novel but with my short stories I would regularly completely discard* the first draft and re-write from scratch. What was good would usually re-surface and it would free me from trying to fix structural problems by tinkering with sentences.

*safely saved to disk of course. I didn't delete them, just re-write without referring to them.
