Brave New Novel

Writing a new novel is like the first day of school. You don't know your new characters, and you don't know if you'll like them. You don't know if everything is going to work out.

I'm trying to sketch out two new ideas. But honestly, they make me miss Shards a little. I might not have always liked that novel in times, in the thick of trying to finish the damn thing when none of the characters would be shoehorned into doing what they were supposed to do when I originally outlined... but at least I always knew what was coming.

Oh well. I just need to keep writing, and give myself some time to fall into As-Of-Yet-Undeclared Novel No. 2.
