How is it that you can write six chapters at once? That's certainly not the way I read my books.

What I do is write certain benchmark scenes and then fill in the blanks between them.

I used to do that. Then I discovered that once my favorite scenes were written, I didn't have a long enough attention span to fill in the spaces. I'm impressed that you can do that and actually have the willpower to write the rest.

This method still allows me to have free creative range. I'm just using certain scenes as benchmarks, but they can change if the story in betweens suddenly changes direction.
