This weekend I’ve had some time to sit down and dedicate to writing, and I’m pretty excited about what I’ve been able to accomplish as well as what is to come.
After hearing some feedback on First Impressions, I decided to move forward with a sort of sequel. Second Thoughts will be told from Dylan’s point of view, and so far I am just about to wrap up Chapter 2 of Dylan’s story.
I already have a rough outline for all 11 chapters, along with notes for what things happen in that chapter in the first book, as well as what things happened in Dylan’s story that we didn’t see in Zia’s. What goes on in Dylan’s mind? What things happen when Zia isn’t around? Well, you’ll soon find out in my upcoming installment!
If you’re curious to know when to expect Second Thoughts, I anticipate having it done within the next few weeks to possibly a couple of months. First Impressions was about 25K words, and I expect Second Thoughts will be somewhere around the same length once all is said and done. First Impressions took a total of 2 years to write from beginning to end, but once I actually sat down and really got to writing it, the process really only took about 5 months. Since I already have a storyline, I’d calculate maybe half that time or less to finish this one.
