It’s that time again!

Since I had a lovely long weekend, I managed to hammer out a whole chapter in a mere afternoon.  The words were flowing like the rain on Sunday and it was awesome!  If only that happened every time I sat down to write. *sigh*

So, since I’ve moved on to Chapter 9 now, here’s a snippet of Chapter 8:

The forest was darker than Henry remembered.  Sure, it was rainy now and then it had been a beautiful sunshiny day, but he had a feeling that this darkness had nothing at all to do with the weather.  Something else was amiss, though, and for a moment, he couldn’t quite put his finger on what.  But as he moved cautiously through the trees, eyes and ears alert for possible signs of danger, he finally realized what was bothering him.

It was quiet.  Too quiet.

I’m really having fun writing a sequel, but it’s challenging in a lot of ways, too.  I try to incorporate a bit of the first book – references to earlier people and events, for instance – but I don’t want to give away too much.  On the other hand, I don’t want to be so vague that I confuse readers.  It’s a fine line to walk.  I hope I’m walking it well.  I guess we’ll see once I’m done, won’t we?

Happy Hump Day!
