Detours

Does taking a break from your new NaNo novel to type out little one-shots counts as being a “NaNo Rebel?”

This is apparently the way my brain works. I’ve been doing really well getting words down for my NaNo project, but this morning when I opened up the document, I started just typing out a little blurb of something else (in closed brackets, of course, so it wouldn’t get mixed up with the other novel). It refreshed my mind and gave me a break from the novel all while contributing to my word count.

Obviously, I’ll go back to my NaNo novel, but that little blurb reminded me that it was okay to not write out stories in a linear fashion. Getting a little bored with the current scene you’re working on? Skip a line and start writing another scene. Not too sure which direction your current scene should go? Write both and see which one works best. Maybe your current scene, while needed, is a bit stale? Rewrite it in someone else’s point of view for a fresh perspective.

While writing, detours are all well and good, sometimes even awesome as they may yield new information or directions for your story.
