My first sequel finished, and my first feedback is that it’s as good as the first.
I’ll take that as two huge wins.
How does it feel? Pretty darn good. I managed to knock out the sequel in almost exactly a year. My goal was to have it finished by Dec which would have been about a half year, but for personal mental health reasons, that didn’t happen. But a year… while working a full time job and being a full time father and husband? That’s pretty sweet. In comparison, the first book took me almost two years… but to be fair to myself – there was a massive learning curve I had to overcome.
But now I’ve proven I can do it. I can write. Repeatedly. And churn out good entertaining work. That’s awesome. Am I a writer yet? I think so!
Anyways, I’m pretty stoked.
And now it’s time to start on the third one.
Gotta strike while the irons hot!
But, first – A song of Victory must be had. Oh yes… Victory!
