I’m taking a little break from finishing the draft of the second novel in my series – since I’m still waiting for the first one to be published, I think that it’ll get me back on track to start a new manuscript in the meantime.
So far, I’ve got five chapters written, and I haven’t hit a writer’s block yet (of course, I just jinxed it!), but this is a standalone novel, which will be different for me. I’ve had the series STORM OWL in my head for the last eleven years, and it had always been planned as a series so it’s strange to have an idea for a storyline that’s just one novel. I think I may try publishing the new one once it’s finished, since publishing a series as a first time published author is harder than just publishing one novel!
I’m not looking forward to writing a query letter for the new manuscript though…man I hate those too much! *sigh*
