After rereading the first book, I sat down to start my official stages of the Discovery process which are usually: Brainstorming, Outline, Anchor Scenes, Plot Sketch, Chapter Breakdown, Soundtracking. Uh, we’re already on step 3. After one day. That’s fast, right? Too fast?
Why does Broken Girl, Book 1, need a sequel? I talk about how Book 1 narratively works on its own if you’re following just the LL2 marriage or the Liason relationship, but as an Elizabeth story, we needed more. I also included a clip that inspired the entire story when I was rewatching back in 2015. We get into my original vision for the story, how it’s changed, and what I know I’m struggling with going into the sequel. I know why I want to tell this story, but how do I do it?
