Well, crew, looks like we're here again. It's the first Wednesday of a new month, so it's time to confess our struggles, triumphs, and/or fears that come with writing.
A big shout out to our Ninja Captain, Alex Cavanaugh, for bringing us together. To see more posts from other insecure writers, click on this link: http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/
In a few days, I'll have my first round of edits, which is exciting. Nothing about this part of my journey shakes me, but something farther ahead does. More than anything, writing book two in this series, terrifies me. I have lots of ideas, and I know my writing has improved, so where's my confidence? I ask myself that question over and over. Truthfully, I wonder if I can write a sequel that measures up to the first story?
Maybe I should put my current WIP aside and quit avoiding the sequel--stop making excuses and write the dang story! When I do, I think it'll be an even greater accomplishment than book one, because this time around, I'm not naive about the work ahead. I know the joyous agony!
Sorry for the short post, but I like to make speedy confessions. Tell me, did any of you go through book two terror?
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time, happy writing or whatever makes you smile. :)
