On Being Linear

Dude, dude, guess what?

The last eight storychunks I've written?

Have been in order.

'struth. I am amazed to realize that. I mean, my brain doesn't generally work like that. Given, the first one is prehistory, but from Julia at the masquerade through

Capri and Halloran getting together and Julia and Kieran's subsequent conversations immediately followed by Ryan and Kieran's subsequent conversation

Through finding out who the Big Bad really is, which I wrote today? All in chronological order.

I grouped the one paragraph together because those things are so tight that I can publish them as a story without editing. Totally sequential.

I usually don't work like that with prose. Comics, yes. Prose, no.

And another thing... maybe it's the writing marathon opening me up. But the Capri-and-Halloran bit and the part of the scene that I wrote today (that'll likely go on abother 25+ pages, it's a Big Revelation) are things that I've had living in my brain for years, but I've felt too intimidated to write them, to set them down "in stone".

Interesting. I like it.

EDIT: I am all about the edits today. I don't know why. Anyway! I will try to work on the timeline with links to storybits, as requested by albumlady, among others. I need to make a to-do list...
