February Writing Update: Sequels and More Ideas

This is exactly what writing is like.

February is moving by quite slowly, which I don't mind. My Kickstarter is (holy crap, I just looked) now at 80% with 24 days to go, and that just turned my day around. Although now I have to do an update, and I wanted it to be a video! It's after 10pm right now, though, so....no video.

I started the month off in jury duty, and let me just say I'm glad I loved Chemistry in school, because I learned a LOT about hemophilia drugs in that time. That said, on Day 1 (which made it so much worse, because I couldn't say anything!) an idea for a story came to me from some of the base facts. It's going to be a vampire novel for sure, possibly horror? Not completely sure yet. Some serious research has to come out of that, but at least I have another story idea!

I mentioned this in January, but I had an idea for a sequel to my current WIP, The Queen's Daughters, and on Monday I finally wrote out a few ideas for it. It'll definitely be another journey story (Fractured Princess is essentially a journey story), but that's all I really know for now. For The Queen's Daughters itself, I've been rereading parts, so now I just have to work on writing more parts and connecting the fragments. There are a few scenes I really need to get down, and I don't want to delay any longer.

As for Fractured Princess, I did a few more quick edits (typos and a minor revision), but I plan on not touching it anymore, as it is the subject of my Kickstarter. I also added a new scene in its sequel, and I can't wait for the whole story to come completely to life. It's going to be pretty big (in my head, anyway). I hope I do it justice.

That's all for now. I will see you all next week with my monthly review!


  1. Good stuff on the Kickstarter!
    Glad someone got something good out of jury duty.

    1. Thanks! I was really not excited about jury duty, but the topic was so engaging!

  2. Hi Deb!

    Yes, congrats on the Kickstarter and I've never done jury duty, but I imagine it would be an interesting couple of days/weeks, but hopefully never months :)
