Let the Madness Begin!

Yesterday I started my second book.

*cue evil laughter*

It's kind of intimidating to be back on page 1, but I think it's going to be good!

You forgot the lightning bolts, Stephanie ;)

It's exciting to start a new story though too, isn't it?

Amalia T. said...

Congratulations! I'm excited for you! Starting my second book was something of a rush. Everything seemed to accelerate a little bit, as I went.

What's the genre?

I got a real buzz out of starting - and finishing - my second book. Once the first one was done, I thought to myself "I can do this"!!! What a sense of accomplishment, and how exciting to have a new start.

Do you have a solid outline, or do you do that? Some writers do, some don't. I tend to have a brief, vague sketch of what the book will be about and then I discover along the way all the twists and turns of the story.

Writing can be such a blast when you're motivated :)

Good luck with it! Cheers, Jill

Matt- I can't believe I forgot the lightening bolts!


Amalia- I know what you mean- all these story ideas keep hitting me. Ow!

It's historical fiction- more ancient Egypt, but this time set in the Old Kingdom, a few dynasties after the pyramids were built.

YAY!!! Glad to hear it :)

Sounds exciting too... keep up updated on your progress!

Also: nothing like a new book to keep temptation to work on your first one out of your mind, huh?

L. T. Host said...

That was supposed to be "keep US updated" ... grrr brain....

Stephanie L. McGee said...

Congrats! Very exciting!

Both good and bad... there's a freshness to starting anew, but then something daunting too, b/c there's that long winding road in front of you w/ all those unseen twists, turns, and potholes :)

Best of luck with the next Stephanie!

We all begin by staring at the same blank page.
