Rearranging scenes

If you're a writer, you have an idea how your novel should progress. Sometimes, your time-line is flawed and you find you've put the cart before the horse. That happened to me. I had a scene planned and felt smug when it fell into place. Horrors! I didn't set it up propertly. Then I had to go back and make sure I had the dates written correctly. Mistakes like that are time-comsuming and unneccessary. Now I use a legal pad to time each chapter. Month/date/ and if necessary, the hour. It eliminates a whole lot of stress and makes writing easier. Keep writing and reading. Joyce
