This is not a post of much content.
For the first time I can remember, I’m pretty much writing two books in the same series back to back. This is mostly because I did two major revisions on the first book and don’t have time to go write something else before the second book is due.
It’s pretty weird. One of the good things (for me) about writing multiple series is that it allows me to get enough distance from any given world that when it’s time to go back to it, I’m usually all excited to be back. In this case, all I’ve had is a three week vacation and I’m now I’m going straight back into the world I left in early November.
I genuinely have no idea how well this is going to work. I mean, it *has* to work, the book is due at the end of January (oi), but as far as how happy my brain’s going to be with the whole thing? No clue.
Oh, no, I just realized I have done this once before, after a similarly huge revision a few years ago. Writing the next book was hands down the worst writing experience of my life. Oh dear. That’s not especially promising. On the other hand, I think I’m set up better for this book than I was for that other one. Agh, I hope I am!
I’ll keep you posted with letters from the battlefield over the next couple months…o.o
