This question applies mainly to those people writing novels i guess Do you prefer to work on it from start to finish? So start with chapter1, and move through the book writing each chapter chronologically? Or do you prefer to write sections and chapters as the ideas occur to you, then fit bits together as and when it's needed? I had always tried to stick with the former, until relatively recently. I figured that was the "right" way to do it. But for those of us with a short attention span, i think it can be a little boring. What sort of changed my mind on the issue was getting halfway through my chapter 7, and just being in the mood to write about something completely different. As a result, i'd look at it every night and think "what's the quickest way to finish this chapter?" Not really conducive towards producing something people are actually going to want to read The only problem i can really see with the latter, is continuity. In other words, trying to keep track of what has and hasn't happened yet in the chronology of the book, because you're writing it out of order. What about you guys?
