Book #3 has finally started -- I think... I hope.
Actually, I did start another book #3 last November when I was *trying* to do NaNoWriMo but I quit after the first 8000+ words because it turned out not to be the book I wanted to write. And since then, I've been working on editing on Book #2 and figuring out what to do with Book #3. I narrowed it down to between two ideas.
Eventually, I decided that I wanted to write something lighter, with lots of humor and fun observation. It's not necessarily a comedy, but definitely nothing as thick and heavy as Book #2 and the other idea for Book #3.
Also, once I switched to first person, the words just flowed. I absolutely love writing in first person, and I feel that after all these months of pondering, I got to know the characters pretty well and I was able to tell the story with their voices. Let's see how that goes. One of the main character is going to be so much fun to write!
Also, since I've now started on it, I want to resume my 500-word-a-day challenge. Hopefully I'd be able to get the first draft done by next Spring. Let's see how that goes.
