Some of that may apply, but I like to begin the process with an overall view, starting with the story goal - is it clear, or at least does it become clear that the main character has a reason to push forward in this story, that it matters to that person to reach the end, and that if they don't at least try, the consequences are dire (either physically, intellectually, emotionally, or spiritually - my PIES test).
And the biggest and most important part of the process: each scene must be part of that journey, it must have an aim/result that leads (even circuitously) in the direction of the main story goal, and each scene must be strong enough to stand alone as a necessary moment because of what it does, how it does it, what's learned or lost or gained.
Each section of the story must build from what's gone before.
The endpoints of each section must demonstrate the strongest emotional moments that relate to the genre of the story, and must be believable and inevitable, but also a stun (whether low volt or high, it must impact the brain with a stun session).
And the end must be justified, produce the outcome that's earned its right to be there, strong enough to produce the final emotional response (not the denouement, at this stage), and be satisfying. the denouement must slow the reader's heart or mind without letting them forget the consequences and how the whole thing came together to produce the next stage of life (life goes on).
Often, at some stage of the editing process, I do rewrite the whole ms from beginning to end (double-doc on screen, one pdf or ePub), makes it easier to pick up on little problems, smoothness, etc. It also highlights things that could be motifs or symbols, and I'll note on the rewrite that these could be used better or removed (do they add or detract from the main story?).
The final read-through (okay, it's never final) looks at any weak points that pop up after all that. They're easy to spot when everything else is strong enough. Usually. Often. Sometimes. And that's when critique or beta readers pop into the picture ...
The brainstorming is something I do with each writing session, because it's amazing what your mind comes up with once the story gets started.
However, this is a process I've changed with every creation, and it will keep growing, changing, adapting as I learn ... I hope.
Still learning, will probably always be learning
