Do you jump into the lake, or do you go in a few inches at a time, trying to acclimate? For book two, I’m doing the latter. Trying to set the scene, reintroduce characters from the first book, and hook people into the current story. So the first couple of days are going to be slow as I build my foundations (and make certain I have my outline together so speed will pick up).

It was a full day quite apart from the writing — I did some freelance copyediting, made chicken paprikash (and had to go to the store for more paprika), did some housework (a chunk of which was just getting the kids to take their books into their rooms), and played D&D (in which I threw a green hag, some witches, an aspect of a demon lord, and some werewolf elves at the PCs; the PCs survived, and no one even got turned into a werewolf, though not for lack of trying).

Part of the day went to standing outside Walmart as the “extra adult” for the Girl Scout table. Afterward, daughter and I went grocery shopping, and she told the woman at the kids’ playroom that she’d just been selling cookies. “Why didn’t you sell me any?” “We still can.” Upshot: seven more boxes sold!
