philosophical note on vignettes

Writing one's vignettes in a coherent world can give you ideas. Both for the vignettes and for interesting plot twists.

But sooner or later, you have sit down and plot the thing.  They will not sort of stick together and form a beginning, a middle, and an end.

And sometimes you need to to devise over-arching things.  Like the motives of the main villains.
