The Fun parts

One of my favorite anecdotes is from a writer who decided that he would write all the exciting, fun parts of his novel first, and go back and fill in the boring middle parts later. When he had finished writing just the fun parts, he looked over what he had, came to an important realization, and sent the finished work off to his editor.

From.

And on that note, I've just finished the first 21 parts (and first week) of Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. And if you liked Harry Potter at all and aren't reading this then you really, really should be.
