The Second Novel…

I know, I know–I’ve yet to even find an agent for the first novel. But, it’s hard to stop the creative mind from bounding in new directions with old–and some new–characters from the first book.

Consequently, I’ve pulled out the old outline I had for a second novel, jotted down some new notes on the plot, quickly scribbled a few short scenes on scrap paper, and ordered a few used books to help with the necessary background research. I think about it and I get almost as excited as I was when the ideas for The Built-in Smile started to pour out of me.

Of course, it would be wonderful if, while I start this process, an agent agrees to represent The Built-in Smile–even more wonderful if that agent finds a willing publisher.

In the meantime, I’ll continue to peck away at the query letters, to start the process for novel number two, and to search for a full-time job to support my writing and my adventures until the writing can pay for itself. That day will come–I have no doubt.
