I was just curious if other writers skip around in their writing. Most of my stories are written from the perspective of two MC dealing with the same situation, or at least different situations related to the same thing. However I often times find myself writing several chapters ahead of one character when I get stuck with the other. The reason I do this is because it lets me see how things unfold, and it also shows me how one MCs actions affect a situation, then I kinda look at the other MC to see their reaction to the same thing and what they intend to do about it. I also have a tendency to write specific scene in a story before I actually get to them. These are usually high points or major events that have been waiting for a while, and suddenly I get a brilliant idea, open another open office page, write it all down, then shove it into my 'scenes' folder for that story. Funny thing is 8/10 scenes written this way do make it into the story, although their intro tends to get altered since the events leading up to them don't always line up perfectly. It's usually minor rewrites though.
