We are taught that stories are linear, they have a beginning, middle and end. What happens when this sequence disturbs the creative process? Look, it’s great when you are able to sit at the computer and plow away a to z. However, sometimes the plot wants to take a winding road.
The scene that your fingers tap into the keyboard starts in the middle of a story. Conflict has occurred, you write that portion and double around to the beginning. After the aforementioned sections are complete, you create the end. Crafting a novel this way can be liberating. Too often we worry about the mechanics and tie up the Muse.
Stretch out your hand. Here, take this invisible sticky note. This is no ordinary paper. It is a pass to venture off the linear story path. Enjoy every turn along the writing road.
