Sequential writing

Made almost double my count Saturday: fell short Sunday. Oh well, that's what overage is for.

I don't think it would ever work for me to write a novel from first word to last word. Though that has been how I've tended to write short fiction. I find myself writing key scenes and then going back and figuring out what has to go in between; there's a logical structure connecting A to Z, which you can determine if you also have, let's say, K, P, and S.

Moreover, the key scenes are usually the more exciting writing and are the ones that motivate me.
