Jumping through the scene

Not only do I write out of sequence. I get bits and pieces of a scene and write them, leaving spaces between the pieces then sew them up. Particularly if there's an interesting part that I know I might forget.

So this is how this morning's work looks...I'm about to mend now.

Again, this is a writing process that might or might not work for you.

May you enjoy your work today.

Glad to know there's somone else out there doing the same. That's exactly how I (or should I say, my muses) work.

Where many people fear the attack of their plot bunnies, I willingly embrace them. If I don't think they're appropriate to the story I'm currently working on, I type them out in their own file and give it a story title just to make them feel important, then I tell them to stand in line. Most have been very understanding, though when NaNoWriMo comes around they all start hopping around, their little paws in the air, begging for attention. Since I know I'll never be able to spend the time necessary to realize the details of a single, full-blown novel during November, NaNo has become my plot bunnies' time to shine. I leave the rest of the year for the big kahunas. Everyone seems happy with the arrangement.

Case in point - I'm currently working on 5 short stories at once, 2 of which are nearly complete, but I'm sure there will be others to make an appearance. I will do my darndest to accomodate all I can before the end of the month.

Well, NaNoWriMo is all about getting into the habit of writing more than anything else, I think. And the story I posted is for the proposal that's teasing my brain, not Heart Change. In fact my word count includes work from that proposal, new pages on Heart Change, revised pages on Heart Change (sometimes word by word), and a short story.

Go, Suzane!

Thank you so much for letting me in on your process. I don't know why I always thought I had to go in a straight line from beginning to end and then always found it so hard to do.

Last year I made my NaNoWriMo wordcount in a single story from start to finish but this year couldn't settle on a story idea until the 10th! EEK! And then I wrote a scene that would fall at about chapter 4 and was totally disheartened.

Until I read your blog! I think this will really help me to get through longer pieces of writing.

PS: Have been reading your books and blog for awhile now and really enjoy both! Can't wait for the next book in both series.

Posted a snippet of one of the finished ones (Liquor of Life) on Diana Pharoah Francis' blog this past Sat. for her Saturday Snippits. Though she did like it, she was NOT amused that it talked about winter and snow. Ah well, I suppose I can't make everyone happy. :D

I guess I should put it up on my NaNo profile, too.
