When you're writing, do you move forward along a pre-determined time line, or do you jump around, writing scenes as they come to mind?
I have been known to do a little of both. Normally, I write the story in sequence, but occasionally I write out of order. There's that scene that just pops into mind and you have to get it down on paper/screen before it is gone with the breeze.
For the Nature of Magic Blogfest Saturday, I wasn't at the point of my story to write the scene about the magic in my world. In fact, I was about four chapters away when I had the idea for the scene I will be sharing. What amazed me was this scene helped me answer a bunch of questions that were making huge gaping holes in my story.
So, would I write out of order again? Absolutely!! Especially if it helps me find the answers I need!
