Let's say you're early on in the novel, like chapter one or two, but you want to write a scene toward the end where something really crucial happens or where the MC learns the Big Reveal. (i.e. out of order). Not the very end, but a scene maybe 2/3 or 3/4 of the way through, where it's leading up to the climax. Now, I realize all the common sense rules that go along with this - don't feel tied down to that scene, you can change it later as needed, etc. But I once heard J.K. Rowling did it and it seems like a good idea. What are your thoughts? And no I"m not asking for validation, I'll probably end up doing this either way, I'm just curious what others' experiences have been and thought it might be interesting to spark discussion. So has anyone else done this? Also has anyone tried writing backwards? Like doing the end first and the beginning last and progressing roughly in reverse order?
