I can't think of the word to fill this blank:
More importantly, now we've got ourselves an "organic" roadmap—that is, one that follows the natural order of our concerns, rather than a logical order such as ____.
Though unrelated to my context, an example of such an ordering would be:
- a bride and groom
- a wedding
- a wedding cake
A wedding cake wouldn't exist without a wedding, which in turn wouldn't exist without its bride and groom. (I'm sorry, the real example is technical and complex, and I can't think of a better example at 3 in the morning.)
I want to say predecession but that's not a real word. Does anyone know the word I'm looking for?
