After pushing to get Fight ready to go to my copy-editors before our annual camping trip, I’m feeling the strain. I emailed out the book yesterday and took a deep, cleansing breath. Then immediately picked up the notebook I’ve already started for book 3. Yeah, I know I should take a break, give my brain something to do other than Nickie’s story but Nickie is just so upfront in my mind right now.
I’m not ready for a break. I picked out the notebook for book 3 about 3 weeks ago (I have a supply of composition books I use for this purpose, most of them have different covers,) about the time I started the last rewrite of Fight. I had to have some place to keep track of the thoughts and ideas for the next book.
Now that I’ve finished with (this stage of) Fight I can get more in depth more intimate with what will happen in the next book. There are some big changes in store for Nickie, she just hasn’t told me yet how she’s going to handle them.
