Well, I’m out of the starting blocks. I promise not to bore you all with chapter by chapter progress reports on TBLP’s sequel, but a threshold of sorts was crossed this weekend. After spending several weeks outlining The High Road (working title only), it seemed to take me a while to get started on the actual writing. The log jam was broken this past weekend and eureka, I finished the first pass at Chapter 1. It will still go through considerable polishing before and after I tackle Chapter 2, but at long last, I’m well and truly underway with my second novel. If all goes according to plan, there will be 20 chapters of approximately 5,000 words each. If feels good to have the first 5,000 words behind me.
