Unfortunately, I also discovered that I didn’t like act two of my outline, so I had to re-plot it.
My goal is get the sequel published before Christmas to take advantage of all the new YA readers who will be getting an ereader for the Harry Potter ebooks.
In order to achieve this I have to write at least 10-12k words each week to get a first draft complete by the end of July. Then I’ll take about a month or two of rewrites, handing off to editing no later than October.
Well, that’s the plan, anyway.
