Trying something different.

I'm trying out a different writing method. I usually write in a strictly linear fashion, from start to finish. This time I'm letting myself write scenes out of order. I still proceed in a linear path for the most part, but if there's something I'm just itching to write I'll open up a new file and write that. I'm hoping that will keep me interested and allow me to get more work done in a day.

So far I wrote one chapter out of sequence, and I'm pretty sure where I'm going to place it in the story. So far writing this way has been fun. I no longer feel like I have to drag my feet and get through certain sections before I can get to the stuff I really want to write.

Now if I can find a way to make editing my near-complete manuscript more entertaining I'd be set.
