Well, this NaNo is interesting...  
My normal writing style:

Linear and make sure that one chapter is "perfect" before moving to the next part.

This year:

It's like the words are skipping stone and the word processing document is the water.

I've got bursts of dialogue from 16 different sections*. Now I've got to "connect the dots". At least I have my last line.

*I probably have another dozen or so snippets to add before I start trying to make sense of this madness in earnest.

A last line is a fabulous thing to have. :D

Sometimes I feel like I live in a world of connect-the-dots with scenes, lol. WHEEE. Are you having fun?

90% of the time, the first thing I have is my last line. I'm always willing to change it, but at least I feel like I know where I want to end up, even if I don't know exactly how the journey will go.

Yeah, for now I'm having fun. I'm sitting at just over 4k of snippet of dialogue. Soon, I'll have to actually start, oh you know, writing the rest of the story, but I'm just going where the muse takes me right now.

WHEEEEE, indeed. :D :D
