How to Conquer Writer’s Block: Tip 10
WRITING IS CIRCULAR, NOT LINEAR. I read linearly: Beginning, Middle, End. But the writing of my rough drafts is not a linear process. Some of my early chapters eventually end up at the end of my manuscript, and vice versa. Sentences, paragraphs, whole sections switch places with one another. Awareness of this circular, fluid process is liberating – I know that the awful rough draft may include nuggets I can use, although they may end up in an entirely different place in the story.
