I must say, I love discovering how much I enjoy parts of the process of writing I never thought I could like. It reminds me of my second year at Seton Hill University when my mentor challenged me on my editing process. My first thought was that I can't do it, at all. And then I asked myself why I thought that, I hadn't tried it yet. I adore the editing process now. It is a completely different creature compared to the creative getting down the first draft. The editing is where I get to really work out the story and work on the craft of writing. And now the new challenge of writing a synopsis of something I haven't written yet, something I thought I couldn't do. But I gave it enough thought, and now I have a great working document.
The plan for starting book 2 then, is to begin the first draft on September 1, though to be hones, I just might start it a little sooner than that.
