Earlier this week, I commented that while I was busy doing some of the logistics for publishing, my “story brain” seemed to take a break. Normally, my characters run around my brain in a glorious parade of sights, sounds, colors, sensations and conversations. When they seemed to be on vacation for a couple days, it was a very odd and quiet time for me. Suddenly, they have come roaring back, along with the basic pieces of the sequel to Keeping Away. Now, it’s a rush to see how quickly I can type!
