the System Apocalypse Book 2

Writing the System Apocalypse Book 2 now and I’m technically on Chapter 7 or so.  I started with an outline of what I wanted int he book and that’s going okay, but what I found / have found is that as I write it, more ideas on how to specifically fit in the themes / characters keep coming to me.

It’s why I haven’t posted anything in Royal Road at all since I started writing since I keep jumping back and going – oh yeah, I should add this scene.  Or, wait – this character here would make more sense.

Partly I think I’ve got a much better ‘feel’ for the book now that I had when I first started writing for fun.  The problem of course is that each time I bounce backwards, it takes longer to finish the book.

I’m leaning towards Option 2 since I’d rather have a good book than a not as good book.  I’ve seen too many series get worst and since my only is myself, I’d rather make sure this is written well than just dump it out.

Which means all the sins have to be left at the doorstep of the source material.
