Just a brief note to those who are following along on my progress…
Main focus for writing this week is on the sequel to Hayden’s War. Last week I finished up the major scenes outline and notes on where I wanted things to go. This week the villains took center stage in my writing. I finished off about eleven chapters of their machinations.
Since the book is projected to be about 45 chapters that wasn’t too bad a start. As I ramp up I expect that things will get much more interesting. I like the general direction but I’m finding too much is coming out in third person and not enough in first where I like it. It will be fixed in the rewrite. For now just getting it out.
I like the backgrounds and “color” and complexity of this story. The story action is more involved than in the first book. I think younger readers will be surprised a bit about how the teens earlier success is now turning against them.
The fight is definitely not over.
