I’m about 55% of the way through book 2. I finished writing out an exciting new chapter over the last weekend, and I’ve made some revisions to my outline that will hopefully make the rest of the process go a little smoother.
In unrelated news, I’m strongly considering working on a pen and paper conversion of the Arbiter System soon. I’d probably have to write the vast majority of it from scratch, which is a bit daunting, but it could be a fun project to work on after Book 2 is finished.
I’m also still debating which novel to work on after Book 2 is done – the magical school idea is feeling pretty likely, but there’s also a good case for editing or rewriting Blackstone. We’ll see soon enough!
