I’ve spent most of the past few months editing my manuscript for my first book. It’s been long, but it’s also been good because so much of what I changed is a lot better. There are scenes I just love.
During all of that revision, I’ve had so much I’ve wanted to write in book 2. I have various scenes just floating around in my head that need to get on paper. Sometimes I’ve stopped to write a few notes so I wouldn’t forget, but I haven’t written a lot of what I know is going to happen. Now, I can do that. I could have done some of it all along, but I have a hard time wrapping my head around two books at the same time.
So my goal is to have the first draft of book 2 done by the end of April (which is when I am having a baby). I think it’s completely manageable, especially since I already have about 1/3 of it written.
One last piece of news (at least I think so) is that I’ve had an idea for another book — completely separate from the trilogy I’m working on. I like the basic premise, so I’ll have to see where it leads.
