I've been considering (with some reluctance) writing a sequel to my book My Friend The Werewolf. The major reason for my reluctance is that many times sequels are not as good, not as fresh and exciting as the original. That may be because the sequel is forced out of an original idea, and now I must find something equally as exciting for the next step...and should there be a next step? But people have been asking me when the next is coming, so I have been considering. I have even gone as far as writing down some ideas and a story line. But, I must take a few steps back, take a hard look at what is there, and decide if it's worth the effort. Then, again, I love the characters in my original story - and there was this unanswered question at the end of the story. In fact, there were a couple of things left unanswered after the final paragraph. So, maybe in the back of my mind I had a sequel waiting to the explored.
Oh, don't you just love writing your questions down so that you can look at them, think about them in black and white? Sometimes questions answer themselves when you take the time to write them out.
