Skipping and Jumping

The whole story is now vibrant in my head. The only thing holding me up is gridlock among the bits that want to be written. I've got scribbles of details and sentences written all over the place so I don't lose them.

The process is accelerating, so I do expect to have the story complete by the end of the dare, and only the boring parts will be missing. Which can be good. If you set aside the novel with the boring parts missing, later on you won't remember what you wanted to put them in for in the first place.

That's why I'm a great believer in skipping around when writing. Write what's interesting, and the rest will take care of itself.
