Sequel Writing

When you write a sequel, the question is whether to make it completely independent, or dependent on the first book. I'm facing that dilemma now. I don't want to rehash everything, but there has to be references to make the story coherent. I do draw the line when it comes to flashbacks.

I keep asking myself is it enough, or too much? Will people understand without reading the first novel? Thank God for my critique group. They keep me from going off the deep end. I can't afford to pull out what little hair I have left.

Around and around I go. Somebody make it stop!

I'd invite anyone with an opinion to leave a comment.
