I know there are such classifications as 'pantsers' and 'planners'- but I was wondering about something related- (probably more of a planners' question, though I'd appreciate anybody's response). Do you write each chapter consecutively, just one after the other, or do you skip around? Skipping would seem risky, leaving gaps in your story that might not mesh with parts written at different times in different orders. But, if you have a part of your story (that you've got a big picture for) further down the plotline and have already got it figured out, do you just write it? Or do you save it for later? (you never know after all what else will come up before it that might work its way in). I've only heard of someone writing a book by skipping around once- and they never finished it. Does this work for any of you, or does it just make the process harder? Thanks!
