Writing Order

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.

Never Ending Journey

Mark Twain: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Obviously I haven’t been on here in a couple of months. However, throughout those few months, I have finished my novel “Bloodmage,” and it sorely needs editing, but it’s FINISHED! I also got promoted at work, and my older sister is engaged. 🙂 So, happy stuff has been happening.

I’ve been doing my best lately to get more into a writing habit, either by actually writing on a novel or doing character interviews or planning with sticky notes or whatever. November’s NaNoWriMo is right around the corner (like, literally a week), and Rachel and I have been prepping (in between bouts of Pokemon and Ace Attorney, I’ll admit). She found a bunch of poster boards so we each have a poster for our respective NaNo novels filled with sticky notes and index cards for the characters, plot ideas, settings, etc.

Last night while Rachel was at a workshop for work I was writing an “interview” for my main character, and it was FANTASTIC because I had a couple of breakthroughs for the novel when November comes around. Literally, I would stop writing in the middle of a sentence in the interview to throw up a new sticky note onto my poster!

Then Rachel came home and informed me that it’s, “the 4th annual Cat Week on the Ellen DeGeneres Show!” So we watched some cat videos from the show. And a Kevin the Cashier segment. And Ellen’s monologue about bags.

Yep. We’re writers!

On that note, I’m Winged_Spirit on NaNo. Look me up!
