I've been working hard on Book Two, and realizing it's more difficult than I'd expected. What I mean is that, despite the fact this is a series, B2 must also stand on its own. If someone picks up B2 without reading the first book, the world and the characters must be as vivid and fleshed out as in the first. I find this part difficult b/c, hey, I already did that, you know? Now, I've got to do it again, to weave in character descriptions and world building without sounding repetitive and without "telling". Not something I have encountered before. Good news is: my plot is on fire and Charlie is back doing her thang.
