Yes, dear reader, you may have noticed that I am not posting something new here every Nano-day. Today however, obviously, I do.
The writing goes quite well. I finally feel at ease with this story, which may strike you as odd. After all, I managed to write the first book too. Indeed, and that is the big hurdle. The first book with Sebastian and Reny is – for me – one of the best books I’ve written so far, and now I am going to write something that has to be at least as good. That is not just writing a book. It’s something daunting, looming.
Still I have good hopes that this book will be worth a read as well. It will have a different feel to it as it’s beginning in a ‘settled’ world. Sebastian has been here for a while, so there are many things he knows already. That doesn’t mean he knows everything yet. There are still places to explore, people to meet and surprises to face. And of course there are things that matter to him and Reny both; things that aren’t always easy to deal with. But how all that ends… for that we all have to wait for this book to be finished and done. Believe me; even I don’t yet know everything that will happen to them! (Although I have some prior knowledge!)
And at the moment of writing this blog post, the word count for the new story stands at 8,027… I’m ready to add some more to that number.
