12:28 pm: To My Writer Friends…


Do you guys have that thing happen where you have this scene running through your head and you keep picturing how to write it…but it's from like book Seven of a series where you are on Book Two?

...This is a fascinating comment in terms of how differently people can think. The obvious thing to me was to go ahead and write them, and I therefore imagined that you had deliberately rejected that option and were resisting the urge!

I have written a scene ahead maybe once in my life. Basically, if I haven't gotten there yet, I don't know what the tensions are that will make the scene work, so I can't really write it.

It just doesn't feel right, so I hold the scene in my head.

I have written snippets of dialogue ahead of time. And long notes when I don't already have any, but not scenes.

In this case, I could write the scene because I do know a lot of the surrounding info...but I probably won't...;-)
