That said, I have a question for other writer-sorts out there. I've discovered that I cannot, CANNOT write on the computer. I mean, I can, but I fall into the trap of re-reading the sentence I just wrote, and going back to edit it, and eventually I hit a point of stasis where I endlessly edit and never move further. I can't even write in pencil, because I have the same problem. So I take a notebook and a full fountain pen, and I walk out to the waterfront; I sit in a little niche there below Gasworks Park and write, then I come home and type up what I've done. When I'm writing in ink, I can't go into endless edit mode because, well, I'm writing in ink.
This is actually why I'm worried about this chapter. Originally I had thought I would just forge ahead, but no, I've come to the realization that I know it needs to go the other way, and I can't make the following chapters flow -- I'll have to rewrite them all if I do -- without changing this one. But I worry that this will be a bad habit to get into. Maybe if I do it just this once it will be okay, though, and I won't start editing instead of writing; I need to (after this) stick to just writing straight through, as far as I can.
