How do you write?
So here’s today’s fun survey. How do you write? And by that, I mean do you write one book the whole way, edit it, and then move on to the next? Do you write more than one? Do you write in forward motion or do you write each section as they come to you?
Moreover, why do you do it that way?
Personally, I write in chronological order, but much of me thinks that I shouldn’t be doing that all the time. I always gets stuck when I need to move from March to April, and nothing really happens. So then I postpone the writing. I think if I realize that the things I want to write are the really interesting things, well, then, the things I don’t want to write are obviously boring. Maybe?
Don’t know. Just a thought. The one time I did write out of order, the characters were completely different and I kept very little of it. I’m having a harder time deciding how to balance everything that I want to write.
I use the Nick Hornby BELIEVER template of Books Bought/Books Read and go from there. Sometimes I write about one book — usually one that I’m really excited about or extremely ticked off about. Sometimes I’ll write about a collection of books. But they are all books I’ve read/currently reading or looking forward to. Although, I’ve pretty much stopped writing about books I’m looking forward to. I find there’s less to say when it’s not even out yet. lol.
I write in chronological order, although I tend to flashback a lot. When I edit the first drafts, I revise the flashbacks and decide if they deserve chapters of their own or if they should go.
They usually go.
