Writing Order

07 Sep

To fellow writers out there, in what order to you write your books?

Do you write from beginning to end? Write the end scene first? Go completely backwards?

Maybe you start off with the scenes you’re most excited to write. Maybe you get the scenes you are dreading over with first. Perhaps you write most of the dialogue, keeping the description bare-bones just to get the words and ideas out of your head. Perhaps you even do the opposite, detailing the world and your characters’ actions before giving much thought to what comes out of their mouths.

Or maybe you just slap down a sentence and keep going from there, just to see where your characters, plot, and you end up down the page.

I think one of my favorite aspects about writing is that there is no wrong way to go about it. Every book out there is a unique mixture of 26 letters, and there’s a plethora of ways to write them.

    Ha, I love that, ‘a unique mixture of 26 letters.’ I just turn up at the keyboard and see what plops out. I have less of an idea where the story is going than the reader. For ages I believed that proper writers had the whole thing planned out in their heads, what a laugh eh?

      Haha, another pantser! Despite plans not working much for us, I know my sister Rachel is a plotter. It’s amazing how many different ways there are to write a story. 🙂

    It’s weird to think that there’s only 26 letters and we can do so much with that.
