The In-between Stuff
For the same reason that I paint all the edges of a room first, I can’t write all my favorite scenes first and glue them together later. Just as the edges of a wall would never get painted if I started with the middle, that glue would never be applied to those scenes. Glue is boring to write. ;)
I do skip ahead once in a while if I’m stuck or I have a moment of inspiration, but for the most part, I write chronologically.
What about you? Do you like to skip around? Or do you start at the beginning and go straight through to the end?
