Series writers, I mean. (Not series as in category, but as in Book 1 of…Book 2 of…)
With the crappy draft of On the Edge done, I figured it was time to reread 72 Hours and check for things like continuity in details and tone and all that crap. Mistake. BIG mistake.
I know it sounds obnoxious, but reading 72 Hours rocks my world. It was a bitch to write, but I love rereading it—something I normally don’t do. No matter where I jump into it, I end up getting lost in the story. I’m sure that’s probably a good thing.
Except when you’re beating the crappy draft of its sequel into submission. OMG, the pressure. Trying to wrap my head around making sure this one is not only as good as, but better than, the first is making my hair hurt. How do people who write series deal with that?
There are NO Doritos in my house right now. No cookies. I ate the last of my fudge at 2am. *sigh*
