Hi rab! Congrats on turning in your latest MS; it must be such a satisfying moment to finally hit "send."
That's an interesting point about world building in sequels. My MS is fantasy too, but I really love world building at the start of a project, so perhaps that's what I'm missing this time around. Hmmm…
Honestly, I think my major concern is recapturing the voice/ tone of my protagonist. It's been over a year since I wrote the first instalment, and the book is in 1st person so nailing her voice is pretty crucial.
Over the last day or so, though, I've started to feel more confident. I think the words are flowing more naturally now, so hopefully that continues. My narrator can be quite a stubborn character, so perhaps she just took a while to warm up again!
