My intentions were good, but I didn’t actually carry through with my plan. I had intended to start planning book 2 (and 3) yesterday. I did buy two nifty notebooks especially for the occasion. I also printed out a summarised version of the Snowflake steps to use in the notebooks. But I didn’t actually start the planning.
At this stage, I could give you a list of reasons, which will only come across as excuses, so I won’t bother wasting my time putting the list together (it isn’t much of a list anyway).
I did, however, think about the plots for both books 2 and 3. I thought about the connection between the three books, and tried to come up with a theme where the titles are concerned. I might have solved this problem, but I’ll have to get back to you after I’ve had the opportunity to start the planning.
Now, I have a question. There are three main characters and there are three books to the series. I am thinking of writing a book from each of the three character’s point of view. Do you think the reader will be disappointed by this? I know children can “fall in love” with the main focal character and they might not like the fact that all three books are not told by the same character’s point of view. Thing is, the main character in book 1 has solved her internal problems. Books 2 and 3 will have the other two characters solve their own internal problem. It will also be an opportunity to learn more about the characters and the world they live in. What do you think? Am I doing the right thing by using different points of view?
