I tried NaNo a few times, and while I reached the word count, I also suffered physically and mentally from the lack of self-care. I love writing, but not at the expense of my well-being.

how does everyone go about organizing stuff before diving into the meat

I never really did very much cuz I'm a dumb amateur but I've been definitely needing to and I really wanna get started on this new story. I'm confident in the content and have been mad brainstorming but if there's a storm in my brain it's obviously gonna cause a lot of havoc and confusion and the streets will be cluttered with broken pieces of thought.

In addition to that organizing the timeline is also killing me. I figure it'd be helpful to get things down somewhere and somehow so they're at least not intermingling with non-sequitur neighbors.

Some people don't organize and just dive in. Those are called "pantsers" (as in, flying by the seat of your pants). Others are "plotters", detailing everything in outline form by chapter before starting.

And some people fall in between. They have only a rough outline, shrug, and have faith that everything will work out once they get writing.

It's up to you. What kind of person are you? Write that way.

the sequence of events itself isn't exactly the problem but the sequence in which the sequence is sequenced

it's nonlinear obv
