I'm doing something different this time around with my novel. Previously, I've just followed my outline, writing every chapter that popped up. This time, I'm skipping around.
Since I'm writing from four different POVs, I've noticed each easier for me to keep my train of thought if I write the sections from one POV for a few days. When I find myself growing tired of that character, I switch to a different POV. The result is that I've written something like this: Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 3, 7, 11, 6, 9.
It's been quite fun, actually. I know that when I finish, I'll need to go back through and iron out the seams, make sure the whole thing fits together seamlessly. It's keeping me energized, though, fueling me on every day to take a fresh look at my manuscript.
I suspect this way of writing isn't new, though! Certainly I didn't stumble upon it by mishap. Those of you who write in multiple POVs, how do you do it? What method do you use? I'm very curious!
