Why Writing a Sequel Was Hard

By |2021-02-21T08:08:44-05:00February 21st, 2021|A Writer's Journey, Fantasy, On Writing|

I had everything lined up as I approached my second book: the skills, the schedule, the mindset, the story. I thought after writing one book, a second book would be a walk in the park. However, as I came to the end of my three-year project of writing the sequel to Junkland, I began to [...]
