The Problem and Solution to Writing Book 2 of a Trilogy

I’ve been completely focused on the new characters in my book 2 that i’ve ignored the plot of 2 and the end to my book 1. Upside: interesting characters Downfall: non existent plot.
I’ve found it useful to deepen the characters histories and have something from their past come back at them while they’re trying to move forward. It increases everyone’s knowledge of them while they grow past their past. Pointer#5?

A Writer's Path


by Teagan Berry

I don’t know why, but for some reason when writing a trilogy I find the second book the hardest.

Book One is simple. Introduce the characters, establish their working relationships with one another, and tease the big, BIG conflict which will happen two books from now.

5 Comfort Books

Lately, all blogs break into 3 categories: WTF,medicinal kittens, and some who ignore the current situation and blog normal content. Consider this list for all crisis, not just political.


Harry Potter And The prisoner Of Azkaban Sorcerer’s Stone and chamber of secrets may be considered more lighthearted, but time traveling, Sirius and Buckbeak make it my personal favorite. It also is the only one without a direct appearance of you-know-who, but has a more psychological villain.



The Princess Bride has no strong female lead but has an absolutely perfect male!







A Wrinkle In Time It’s been so long…flying centaurs.





The Hobbit I love dwarves! But Peter Jackson messed with my memory, so maybe I don’t love dwarves? Must read it before I start to hate it.



Into The Wild Alex Supertramp is the awesomest human who ever died.

Mrs. President

Warning: politics


If Earth were perfect, Jill Stein would become president this Tuesday, but if Earth were perfect, we wouldn’t need her or Bernie. If you’re seriously considering not voting for the major candidates, vote anyway for Jill, just to say, “We need positive change.”

But consider this: Hillary Clinton is human. An old human, and as we all know, old humans suck with technology. She is careless sometimes, but she has the experience to be president. Obama was 47 when he took office. Bush served as gov’nor of Texas for 5 years after starting oil companies why the F* did you people elect him?!? Bill Clinton was 46.Hillary Clinton is politics. She voted against the Bush tax cuts and drilling in the arctic while senator. This woman is more qualified than these men to be president.

If you still can’t vote, consider this:
