Outlines and Outlanders

Today I have finished the outline for the second novel in the Secret Life of Astrogirl series, and will begin writing it in earnest in the next few days. I must say, it went a lot faster than I expected, though I guess having the seeds of a plot even before I wrote the first novel helped immensely.

So what the hell is The Secret Life of Astrogirl? It's my second novel that I deemed fit enough to publish, though it is currently being edited and shopped around. With Lost at Comic-Con, I just wanted to get it out there into the wild. Now I want to get all fancy and have it published by one of the big publishers and maybe even sell out a little and make some money on it.

Wouldn't that be nice?

Anyway, the first book deals with Astrogirl, a superhero who is trying to adjust to having a secret identity after years of living without one and the adjustments she has to make in learning how to juggle the two, a love life and saving the day on a regular basis. I think it's pretty good, but I may be biased. Hopefully, the editing on that can go concurrently with the writing of the sequel.

It may drive me crazy, but maybe, just maybe, I can pull it off.

I'll keep you posted.
