So I have this nasty little writing habit that often keeps me up at night, trying to piece scenes together. I am not a plotter; I’m a panster through and through. However, I tend to wake up in the morning, an idea or dream about a character fresh on my mind, and I write it down. Sometimes these little blurbs end up being pages long and don’t occur for many unwritten chapters ahead. I’m then stuck trying to weave them into my story when the time comes.
Does anybody else write this way, or do you adhere to the strict, linear chapter by chapter form of writing?
